  Mallory and Irvine The Final Chapter: Alone at ABC


copyrightę2004

Update 5/08/2004: Alone at ABC

"I think I am the only person at ABC right now," TjW. Most climbers [from other teams] have gone up the North Col or are at Chinese base camp or lower. Some climbers have gone back to KTM.

We are re-installing camp 2 and installing camp 3. The ropes to high camp will be completed soon. It is sunny. We are on the move...

As you are probably beginning to figure out, numerous people are looking for Sandy this year on Everest. We are pledged to our mission. It will not be easy.

The move up this week by the three climbers with a  metal detector who were observed up near the location of George Mallory's body  was bold. Our climbers will not go up without camps and ropes.

You might have noticed we have have changed our base name from "Mallory and Irvine The Final Chapter: The retrieval of the camera" to "Mallory and Irvine: The Final Chapter". One of our old advisors was focused on a camera, the more we study this issue, the more we realize that George Mallory and Sandy Irvine were not about a camera, but about being Fearless on Everest, as Julie wrote so well in her excellent book. George and Sandy went for it. They gave it their all.

More to follow on our thoughts in the coming days...

We have come to Mount Everest in search of an answer.
