Still Waters Posted May 21, 2017 #1 Share Posted May 21, 2017 (IP: Staff) · A famous feature of Mount Everest has collapsed, potentially making the world's highest peak even more dangerous to climbers. Mountaineers said the Hillary Step may have fallen victim to Nepal's devastating 2015 earthquake. The near-vertical 12-metre (39 ft) rocky outcrop stood on the mountain's southeast ridge, and was the last great challenge before the top. It was named after Sir Edmund Hillary, who was the first to scale it in 1953. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-39989992 2 Top Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
