Who was the world's second person to summit Everest?
Both George Mallory and Sandy
Irvine made a summit attempt on June 08, 1924 and were seen by Howard Somervell
close to the summit as Howard Somervell was coming down from a failed attempt, so
either of them could have been second, but there is no proof they ever reached
almost 30 years, until May 29, 1953, for the first confirmed ascent of Mount
Everest with Sir Edmund Hillary being the first person to reach the top.
The credit for being the world's second person to
summit Everest goes to Hillary's sherpa, Tenzing Norgay.
