1937: John Hunt's Yeti Prints

The Legend:

In 1937, climber John Hunt found two lines of manlike tracks winding up the mountain; he also found steps cut into an ice slope, which he himself used, but later determined no other known climbers had gone ahead of him. This may have happened in the Zemu gap, which Hunt is known to have explored.


        My only source for this incident at the moment is just three sentences from an article about the "wild men of Everest" published in a 1957 issue of Popular Science. Naturally, this needs to be investigated further before it's trusted.
