    Aw, Kish, that statement went undisputed for three years! You can't wade in and dispute it now!

    Lol Kate. Do we even know positively for sure that this is a Bounty bar in question here as it was a Marathon getting it up there I reckon!

    I wonder how many Bounty Bars died on the way up to get just one to the top?

    A Bounty bar and a few flags? You ain't seen nothing yet...

    Viewer discretion advised, but the truth is the truth, pretty or not.

    Edmund Hillary's words are one viewpoint. The last paragraph of this National Geographic article is another.

    Anyone else on here noticed the sideways on papoose style wrapped baby with wide open mouth! No it is not actually really there, just that because of the whole simulacra thing, it looks a bit like one, is all! On far left hand side top of picture.

    Simulacra are things that your eyes and brain see an image in when it is not really there.

    Since watching the other day the fab film Everest here, one pound from a charity shop, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Everest_%2782

    I now realise that choc bars are left at the summit as gifts or offerings for the spirit of the mountain, Lady or Goddess of the Mountain. In the 1975 Canadian expedition they left a Kit Kat up there to ask for a safe descent, recreated in the film!
