Leszek Cichy presents the note which Ray Genet left on top of Mount Everest in 1979
On 17 February 1980 Leszek Cichy and Krzysztof Wielicki made the first winter ascent of Mount Everest. Leszek Cichy presents the note which Ray Genet left on top of Mount Everest in 1979.
The expedition was led by Polish climbing legend Andrzej Zawada, the driving force behind the idea of winter 8000-meter climbing.
