“Because it’s there”

I’ve said from time to time that when once asked why he climbed Everest, Sir Edmund Hillary quipped “Because it’s there”. As it turns out, I happened across the actual person to whom the quote is attributed: George Mallory.

Unfortunately for both Mallory and the power of the quote, Mallory’s body currently resides on Everest.
