Jim Whittaker: The first American to summit Everest! He did so as a member of the American Mount Everest Expedition in 1963 led by Norman Dyhrenfurth. He summited on May 1, 1963 with the Sherpa Nawang Gombu (a nephew of Tenzing Norgay). They ran out of oxygen but managed to reach the summit. Once there, Whittaker planted a US flag at the top. So, can you hit like for Whittaker today? Good luck and always remember... it's cool to be cold!
