AUTHENTIC ARE THE SIGNATURES IN THE
BOOKS AND ICE AXES WE OFFER?   
 "How can we prove that the signatures in our Books and Ice Axes are real?" 
 
Here is the evidence, the culprits, caught with PEN IN HAND!
The photos were all taken by Michael Chessler or an assistant.
Some of these great climbers have passed away, or are unable to sign books anymore.
 
 
This is the first time I [Michael Chessler] met Ed Hillary. It was in the early 1990s and he actually came to our bookshop, then in Kittredge Colorado. We met with him many times for him to autograph books, ice axes and so forth, but later we always went to meet him, in NYC, LA, SF, Banff, and several times to Auckland. He was always very nice to us, and we are proud to have known him. And yes, we made contributions to the Sir Edmund Hillary Himalayan Trust every time we met him.

Heinrich Harrer, another Austrian who also liked to chat with Heinke in German! Died 2006.

Jamling Tenzing, showing me his father's Porter Book. The book is signed by Tilman, Shipton, Ruttledge, Lambert, Denman, etc. Tenzing didn't get it signed by the Brits in 1953, as even though he was the Sirdar, he was also a full team member.
