I think you need to give your fans an IQ test, Colin.

Mallory pushed to his death, taking a novice partner with him, having got nowhere near the summit.

Norton climbed to 8570m without O2 until it was clearly unsafe, wisely turned around and descended under his own power to live another day, establishing a major record that stood for over half a century.
