How do we summarize Mallory and Irvine 2005?
Probably in 3 parts, and then a Q&A if you wish....
A.) The horror of it all. Addressing the
very possible to go that way staying on the ridge"
C.) Have you ever looked at DV film for 3 hours
The hard one: The horror of it all.
One set of climbers saw "body parts" in 2005. We saw many
body parts in 2004. We were prepared to see body parts in 2004. In 2005, the
climbers frankly probably were not prepared to see "body parts". One
"climber/body" is interesting based on the description given to us. What appears to have been
observed when we say "climber" was a upper part of a body or maybe better
described as the upper part of a torso. Another group also stated they
had seen a body or the
upper part of a body from a distance. We need to compare notes and pictures to
see if this "body" is the same.
Probably best described as "the horror of
The upper part of the torso was discovered and legally
buried with a prayer. This torso has yet to be positively identified. It might
not be possible to positively identify the torso because of the condition. At
EverestNews.com we are waiting for the pictures and the film. We supported
these climbers in 2004, but they were all independent...
Mostly film was taken which is excellent for determining
where the climbers were, however is not the best for display purposes nor for
fine detail. No camera or large objects were found with the "climber/body".
Hopefully, in the next few months we hope to better evaluate who this body was, based on
the evidence submitted to us. Several other dead climbers were observed which
were "known" dead climbers.
Looking at pictures of dead climbers is not fun, in fact
after looking at the first set in 2004, we deleted the pictures from our
computers. The pictures can stay on CD's and DV film...
We returned to Mount Everest in search of an answer.
weather, high altitude double boot for extreme conditions The Olympus
Mons is the perfect choice for 8000-meter peaks. This super lightweight
double boot has a PE thermal insulating inner boot that is coupled with
a thermo-reflective outer boot with an integrated gaiter. We used a
super insulating lightweight PE outsole to keep the weight down and the
TPU midsole is excellent for crampon compatibility and stability on
steep terrain. WEIGHT: 39.86 oz • 1130 g LAST: Olympus Mons
