    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.

Music - Hydra by Huma Huma http://garethdthomas.homestead.com/malloryandirvine.html On 8th June 1924, British climbers George Mallory and Andrew Irvine left their high camp on Mount Everest in a bid to reach the summit. Neither returned. They were last seen alive at 12.50pm as they surmounted an obstacle on the Northeast Ridge, not far from the base of the final pyramid. They were “going strong for the top”. But whether the pair were the first to reach the summit, 29 years before Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay, and how they came by their deaths, remain a mystery. Last Sighting Mallory and Irvine were last seen by their fellow climber Noel Odell. This account of what he saw has captivated climbers and historians ever since: "At 12.50, just after I had emerged from a state of jubilation at finding the first definite fossils on Everest, there was a sudden clearing of the atmosphere, and the entire summit ridge and final peak of Everest were unveiled. My eyes became fixed on one tiny black spot silhouetted on a small snow-crest beneath a rock-step in the ridge; the black spot moved. Another black spot became apparent and moved up the snow to join the other on the crest. The first then approached the great rock-step and shortly emerged at the top; the second did likewise. Then the whole fascinating vision vanished, enveloped in cloud once more." http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/everest/lost/mystery/ Lost On Everest - The Search For Mallory & Irvine. 4/5 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iQ3SrO2cbHM https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7y0dRYjH7fE https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M--qF0Fm5I8

Mid of Anker talking to hotel staff at lobby STORYLINE: An expedition on Mount Everest, which retraced the route of the 1924 climb by George Mallory and Andrew Irvine, returned from the mountain on Wednesday, unable to confirm whether or not the two men were the first to scale the world's highest peak. Climbers from the Altitude Everest Expedition 2007 returned to the Nepalese capital Katmandu on Wednesday, after reaching the 8,850-metre (29,035-foot) summit from the Chinese side of the mountain in the north and filming a documentary. The expedition was hoping to answer Mount Everest's long-held secret - whether the two Britons reached the summit, 29 years before New Zealander Edmund Hillary and Nepalese Sherpa Tenzing Norgay successfully scaled the mountain on May 29, 1953. "I still believe the possibility is there they made it to the top but it is very unlikely," said US climber Conrad Anker, 44, of Bozeman, Montana, who reached the summit on June 14. The team filmed a documentary investigating Mallory and Irvine's last journey as they tried to reconstruct their final, fateful hours. There has been speculation for years that Mallory and Irvine may have conquered Everest but died on the way down. So far there has been no proof, and mountaineering community and history books recognise Hillary and Norgay's climb as the first to reach the top of the highest peak. Anker discovered Mallory's frozen body in 1999 during a similar expedition.

English/Nat Seventy-five years after George Mallory and Andrew Irvine disappeared high on Mount Everest, leading mountaineers remained divided on Tuesday over whether the climbing duo had been the first to summit the world's highest peak. Mallory and Irving set out to conquer Everest in 1924. An expedition, that recovered the frozen corpse of Mallory on the mountain earlier this month, has given details of their discovery. At a press conference in Kathmandu on Tuesday, Eric Simonson, team leader and experienced climber from Ashford, Washington, said he did not think they made it to the summit since the route was too long and too hard. The American, British and German climbers who attempted to settle the debate once and for all are divided on whether George Mallory and Andrew Irvine were the first people to climb Mount Everest. They disappeared on the slopes of the mountain, never to be seen again. Team leader Eric Simonson doesn't believe they made it to the top, while Andy Politz, from Columbus, Ohio, says he still thinks they did. Earlier this month, the 10-member team retraced the route Mallory and Irvine took in 1924, 29 years before New Zealander Sir Edmund Hillary and Nepalese Sherpa Tenzing Norgay made the first successfully documented ascent. Conrad Ankar, 36, from Big Oakflag, California, discovered Mallory's frozen body on 1 May. After discovering the body, the team then spent hours looking around the area for physical evidence, such as the camera they reportedly carried, which could yield information on whether they actually reached the summit. SOUNDBITE: (English ) "George Mallory now is buried and there is no reason for another expedition to ever go back to him. So we feel that our second search effort, what we were unable to find - Andrew Irvine and the camera - again we can conclusively say, there is no camera on George Mallory, there is no camera anywhere near George Mallory. And there is no reason for another expedition to ever go back and revisit the grave." SUPER CAPTION: Eric Simonson, team leader Simonson and his team removed handwritten letters found on Mallory's body, goggles from his chest pocket, an altimeter, a pocketknife and a piece of rope. They put them on display during their press conference in Kathmandu on Tuesday. The objects will be handed over to the American Foundation for International Mountaineering Exploration and Research, which is based in the United States. They also cut a piece of flesh from the arms and sent it to England for forensic tests. The tests could take weeks to complete. SOUNDBITE: (English ) " We are under the assumption that the things found on Mount Everest belong to the finder. However we intend to give the artefacts to this American foundation, to decide the best way to handle them...whether that means returning them to the Mallory's family, whether that means putting them on display in a museum, whether that means making them available for research - we are totally open and we will investigate all these possibilities." SUPER CAPTION : Eric Simonson, team leader Some believe Mallory and Irvine reached the summit and died on the way back. It took Conrad Anker about 10 hours to make the trip from the spot where he found the body to the summit of Everest. Mallory's body was found about 600 metres (2,000 feet) from the summit not far from that of a Chinese climber, Wang Hongbao, who had first discovered a body of a man in 1975 just below the spot where an ice ax belonging to Irvine was recovered in 1933. The axe had three notches on the handle, which was how Irvine marked his equipment. Team members agreed that the body discovered by the Chinese climber was that of Irvine since the body they found was left untouched.
