Mallory and Irvine: Is the
trail dead? No significant search efforts appear to be planned, of course few
efforts are public as the hunt appears to be under the radar. The chances of
finding any of the numerous cameras various sources claim Sandy was wearing
appear to be thin and none. Below are some pictures of
"20's mountaineering equipment found on the north side of Mt.
Everest by Chinese climbing team" according to Chinese sources.
One wonders if the Chinese took
cameras back with them too....
Xu Jing. told our reporter in 2004 “We saw the body of Mallory in 1975”, “In
1975, Wang Hongbao came across the body. At 8,100 meters he found a foreign
ice axe. Later on he had an accident, he was killed in an avalanche.”
Everest 2007 will bring a huge number of climbers to
Everest, and on the wild wild west side of Everest the hunt will surely
continue, under the radar...
