On June 8, 1924, George Mallory and Andrew Irvine left their tent high up on the slopes of Mount Everest and climbed into history. They were seen at 12:50 pm just 800 feet from the summit and "going strong for the top". Within minutes, Mallory and Irvine had disappeared in a snowstorm and were never seen alive again.

Jake Norton discovers the 1938 high camp on the Northeast Shoulder of Mount Everest in 2004. The camp, located in possibly the windiest spot on Everest, was all but abandoned in 1938 and left in the elements for 66 years. All that Jake discovered was a tent pole, some old cans, bits of tent material, and some pitons and other items. Jake also takes viewers on a tour of the Northeast Shoulder of Everest, showing where Boardman & Tasker disappeared in 1982 and the possible ascent route taken by Mallory & Irvine in 1924. High winds that day, so Jake has added subtitles to help you understand what he is saying and describing. Enjoy, and visit http://www.mountainworldproductions.com for more!
