Expedition Uncovers Fate Of Climber George Mallory

The petrified, frozen remains of climber George Leigh Mallory lie on a slope of Mount Everest May 1999 in Nepal. The lost mountaineer's body was found 75 years after he and fellow climber Andrew Irvine disappeared in 1924 trying to reach the summit of Mount Everest. Due to an unusual spring thaw, the remains were found by Eric Simonsen's 1999 expedition, which had sought to find clues of the fate of Mallory.
