1930s & Earlier / Did Mallory Conquer Everest First
Thirty-seven-year-old British mountaineer George Mallory may have reached the summit of Mount Everest in 1924--29 years before Sir Edmund Hillary achieved the feat. In June 1924, Mallory and Andrew Irvine attempted to reach Everest's summit via the North Col route. The twosome were last spotted a few hundred metres from the summit by geologist Noel Odell. They were not seen alive again. Mallory's well preserved frozen body was not found until 1999. (Irvine's body has yet to be found.) Did Mallory die trying to reach the summit or did he reach it and perish on the descent? Nobody knows for certain. His camera has not been found. However, Mallory intended to leave a photo of his wife at Everest's summit if he got there. The photo was not found on Mallory's body.
