  Mallory and Irvine The Final Chapter: Your Time


In less than 30 days the climbers will begin arriving at Mount Everest, bringing with them the energy and spirit of adventure that has captivated us, and our imaginations, now for almost a century.

This spring we at EverestNews.com will embark upon our own journey to the mountain, picking up from the last sighting of George Leigh Mallory and Andrew (Sandy) Irvine near the summit during the British Everest Expedition of 1924.

___________________________________

Everest stirs up passion.             

The spirit of our expedition is rooted in historical curiosity, and born out of a sense of honor and respect to those who have ventured before us.

Our objectives are to locate Sandy Irvine, retrieve the camera it is believed he carried, and to re-construct the final events to learn if the summit was gained.  Our intention is to return the personal possessions to the Irvine family as they have requested of us, and most importantly, to give Sandy the Christian burial he deserves and as has been requested by the family.

We will need the help of the entire climbing community while on Mount Everest. We have been asked by the family that information from the mountain be relayed to them before this information is given to anyone else. Please help us to respect the family’s wishes.  After a burial, in most countries it is a legal requirement that thereafter the body remains untouched. The family requests this, and we join them in their belief that this practice should be respected in the mountains.

We will attempt to treat the subject with the utmost respect. We won't be perfect, but we will try very hard.

We will go very quietly and very slowly.

We will stay focused and small. We need to stay on task and without complex agendas. No reporters, no cameramen, and no interviews while on the mountain. Our names are not important. This is not about us.

___________________________________

There are many theories about just what happened on that fateful day of June 8th, 1924. Ours is unique and different. We have a high degree of confidence in making a discovery, and we look forward to sharing it with you once we have communicated with the family.

We would like to thank those who have helped sponsor this expedition, and to whom we are grateful for their encouragement and support.

The costs of the expedition are significant, and we welcome the generosity of others who may be in a position to help us out.  Corporate sponsorship funds or individual contributions that we received are used solely to pay for the expenses of the expedition.  We thank you for your consideration, and for being a part of this.

Most importantly, we ask for your prayers for the climbers as the journey begins. Prayers for their health, safety, and the freedom to make the expedition a complete success.

With our kindest regards and thanks, The Staff at EverestNews.com

We go to Mount Everest in search of an answer.
