"We felt that commemorating the achievement of these pioneering mountaineers was the right thing to do. What they accomplished 50 years ago set a standard of excellence and teamwork that should make every American proud. Mount Everest is an enormous mountaineering challenge today. It's almost inconceivable that they were so successful a half a century ago," said George Basch, "Chief Cook" of the Himalayan Stove Project. "The poster is absolutely gorgeous and would be a terrific holiday gift for anyone with even the slightest passion for mountaineering and mountaineering history."
