Rob Hall
Birth: Jan. 14, 1961
Death: May 11, 1996

Mountaineer and guide from New Zealand. Hall's reputation as a mountain climber in the Himalaya and around the world (he was the ninth person to complete climbing the "Seven Summits," the highest peak on each continent), along with his organizational skills, allowed him to form and co-manage the Adventure Consultants Company. This was one of the most successful companies guiding paid clients to goals such as the top of Mount Everest. On May 10, 1996, Hall led a guided group toward the summit of Everest, but disaster struck when he and several clients were caught high on the mountain late in the afternoon and a storm blew in. After reaching the summit, Hall stayed with a client who was exhausted and unable to descend by himself. Hall made it off the summit and past the Hillary Step, to the South Summit, where he attempted to make a bivouac in a small sheltered area. He spent the night there and the next day, never able to descend. He died of exposure sometime during the evening or night of May 11. His body was discovered later by climbers, just off the top of the South Summit, toward the summit ridge, in a small sheltered depression. Hall's name was made famous to the public by John Krakauer's book "Into Thin Air" (1996).
