"But we believe in mountaineering not only because John Hunt leads his party brilliantly and safely up and down Everest, but because countless unrecorded climbers find unique satisfaction, often for year after year, in doing ordinary climbs. Their pleasures ... are the solid base of the pyramid which enables us to assert that climbing is not the eccentric hobby of a handful of desperadoes!" ( Jack Longland in "The Alpine Journal", Nov. 1957 )
