Standing at an astounding height of 29028 feet above sea level Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay were the first people to ever successfully climb to the summit of Mt Everest After the men climbed Everest both men wrote about their experiences during their journey Tenzing wrote The Dream Comes True and Hillary wrote The View From the Summit Both of the stories are incredibly similar but contain some very controversial differences like the size of the gap whether or not the two men helped the other equally and whether or not one struggled more than the other Near the end of the story when they are facing theyre last big challenge the two men had to climb up a large rock When standing at the bottom of this bolder Norgay says In my judgment the gap was little more than fifteen feetNorgay 40 but Hillary says forty feet up I pulled myself out of the crack Hillary 34 These men were very experienced climbers and can easily tell the difference between fifteen forty and fifteen feet Hillary was an incredibly prideful man and was very proud he exaggerated everything a bit to make him sound better Norgay on the other hand was more truthful about the whole thing for instance he was honest enough to say that Hillary was the first one to reach to peak of the summit The men were very successful in their journey but when reading theyre accounts one could see the obvious differences between the two In the long run this little difference doesnt make a huge effect on the stories but it really tells a lot about the two mens personalities Another difference between the two accounts when they are climbing the gap and Hillary claims that he did it easily but Norgay struggled tremendously
