  Mallory and Irvine The Final Chapter: Mystery climbers


copyrightęGeorge Dijmarescu 2004

Update 5/11/2004: Mystery climbers continue to search and conditions too dangerous for us...

This week we moved supplies up the mountain. The winds were very strong as predicted by our forecaster on Tuesday.

Two mystery climbers were observed searching the Chinese location and other unknown climbers were observed apparently searching down lower, moving very slowly. We don't know who these mystery climbers are, nor if they were the same people, or even from the same team. We are told, these mystery climbers did not come down, therefore it is assumed they did not find what they were looking for...

These climbers are hard to miss if you go to 8300 meters, when no other climbers are going past high camp. Again, we don't know who these mystery climbers are, nor are we focused on finding out. We thought you might want to know...

Frankly, the conditions are too dangerous for us to go up, on our own terms. Therefore, we are coming down to stay awhile. Our plan is not for a search, so we don't need much time. But we do need a couple of days without snow...

The really bad news is from our forecaster, who predicts high winds for a few more days, followed by snow. We will discuss this in more detail in a separate report.

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