The story of the 2001 Mallory and Irvine expedition is a step-back-in-time look at a number of the earlier Everest expeditions. The team managed to find early camps and uncovered archeological material from the '22, '24, and '33 British teams and the '60 and '75 Chinese expeditions. The team also made a life-saving rescue of four climbers very high on the mountain for which they were awarded the AAC Sowles Award. After the expedition, Hemmleb and Simonson traveled to China to interview several aging members of the 1960 and 1975 expeditions and made further remarkable discoveries regarding Mallory and Irvine. Simonson summitted Everest in 1991, led the 1999 and 2001 Mallory & Irvine Research Expeditions, and has climbed all eight of the Seven Summits. This is one of only 300 hardcover copies.
