Discovery Of George Mallory's body (caution - old dead body here)

Dany56

Expected to be impressed.
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.

That mountain is covered with corpses now, and every year someone adds themselves to the number.
Mallory was a true pioneer.
RIP.
