Q. So what happened to
the Search for Mallory
and Irvine in 2006?
EverestNews.com: It can best be described as "Deep Underground" with
floating around about clothes, oxygen bottles, body parts and more being
Q. What did these unknown searches REALLY
find in 2006?
Who knows... most probably nothing of importance, in that whatever
"searching" occurred happened below the The Second Step... Therefore, what can
anything they find really prove?
Q. Could they confirm known facts, like
Simo's team rediscovering the dead body of George Mallory?
Possibly... But what what does all of that mean? We know George and Sandy
died.... The Chinese gave locations of the bodies.... SO? Did they summit is
the question, not if they died....
Q. Why are these people searching?
You would need to ask whoever these people are ....
Q. Why underground?
Most searching in the last few years have been "underground" with little to no
news being reported on them; From the Hahn search in 2004, or Graham's almost
annual treks, to those in the shadows most likely looking to find some
treasure... Why? Again you would need to ask them....
Q. So what now?
Well mostly because of
Hillary brave words on walking by dying climbers, most of the world now
knows the North Side of Everest is the Wild Wild West... We see little change
in the future... The summit draw is very powerful... Doing something new or
for history is very rare, even after 3000 summits of the hill...
Q. What about EverestNews.com searching again?
EverestNews.com: Once is enough...
Q. Any new theories or evidence ?
None that we can see. We still only see 2 ways real
options on George
got to where he died... We have seen no one come forward with any reasonable
theories or adding to the very limited known facts. We have seen no real
evidence showing that George summited or did not summit from anyone....
Q. Do you think The Second Step can be climbed? and how.
EverestNews.com: Yes. LOL. One good climber. It is certainly not Mars or the
Q. Do you think the Chinese know more.
Yes, they clearly knew where George and Sandy were. It
is easy to believe they knew much more, but the climbers are getting old, and
much of what was they knew is probably gone....
Q. Do you think brave men willing to search up high will
come forward to look for evidence above The Second Step?
One day maybe, but we don't see any currently....
