Interesting read. I personaly would have said the 'most famous dead body' on Everest was that of George Mallory.

Yes but there are no pictures of that one... so while the most famous death on Everest he really isn't the most famous dead body up there.

I think if you limit it to dead bodies that can be seen it would be fair to say this is the most famous.
