OSU Honors Climbing Professor

CORVALLIS, Ore. — Fifty years ago Wednesday, a former OSU professor made history.

Will Unsoeld was part of the first successful American expedition to the world’s highest peak.

The university honored Unsoeld’s audacious ascent to climb a route that had never been done.

It’s a monumental feat. Only three climbers have been successful. Nine others died.
