Sorry, every time I hear the term "leadership," I assume it is for some terrible corporate seminar event.

Is that why you're asking?

he refused to say whether it was he or tenzing norgay who stepped on the summit first, acknowledging the teamwork involved and recognizing "his sherpa" as his peer. Crag Dweller

Edmund Hillary was once had four cats named ginger because he ran out of names about a month after his favorite cat named Polly had become impregnated by a stray cat that was once named Fredrick but now didnít care about what itís name was because it had become too preoccupied with finding food to eat in garbage cans and finding cats named Polly to impregnate.

He once lead his friends to an ice column in Vail and then lead the climb to set a top rope anchor at the top. He ran his rope straight through webbing tied around a tree. As he lowered his friends over and over he gradually sawed through/melted the webbing. He then climbed himself and the webbing failed during his lower. Showing true leadership he broke his own leg in the fall and then want on national TV to spray about it and assure us he was "experienced". Rick Blair

Me and my Fetish I guess.. ;)
Once, while he was leading an expedition to summit Kangchenjunga, a substantial portion of the team rope became frayed beyond use after several of the members took a fall over a jagged edge. In an act of sheer team devotion and selflessness, he removed his small intestine and used it to supplement the remaining good portion of the rope to lower the injured members to safety from the end of a severed crevasse edge into a shallow schrund. He then carried all injured members back to base camp. Daryl Allan
