Although Edmund Hillary was the one who made Time's "Most Influential People of the 20th Century", his incredible first ascent of Everest wasn't his achievement alone. In fact, the total number who took part in the historic expedition was reported to be over 400. When Hillary hit the summit with Tenzing in tow, it was thanks to the support of a dedicated team all the way through.
