Detailed Product Description
London, 2009. 1st edition. 256 pp, 24 color and b/w photos. New hardcover with dust jacket.

Everest was, to George Mallory, "The wildest dream." This gentleman adventurer was obsessed with taming the unconquered peak. But in 1924 he and climbing partner Sandy Irvine disappeared forever into the clouds encircling the peak. Might they have reached the summit before their tragedy? It is mountaineerings greatest mystery.

Seventy-five years later, Conrad Anker made an extraordinary discovery. He spotted a patch of white on Everests North Face. It was Mallorys frozen body. Artifacts found on Mallorys body implied that he might have made it to the top. But that route had never since been climbed without modern equipment. Was it possible?

To find out Anker returned to Everest, with death-defying young rock star of climbing Leo Houlding as his partner. Kitted out in period clothing, they set off to replicate the unaided climb. Mallorys fate was a chilling reminder of the mountains might. But they knew that to solve Everests greatest mystery they must push their very limits.
