?Originally published in Great Britain 1955
Neurosurgeon Dr. Robert Charles Evans was John Hunt’s deputy leader on Everest 1953. He and Tom Bourdillon were the first men to the South Summit, which Tenzing and Hillary surpassed three days later on the way up the Hillary Step and to the summit. (The South Summit is slightly higher than Tenzing and Swiss Raymond Lambert reached in 1952).

Evans was leader on Kanchenjunga 1955 – see below
