MountainZone.Com Everest '99 Cybercast
The world was rocked May 2, 1999 by news of the discovery of George Leigh Mallory's body. By any measure, the news was amazing if not incredible. Now is the time to present photographic proof of an event that offers resolution, after 75 years, to one of the greatest mysteries of mountaineering history.
The fact that the proof comes as a photograph of the body of a famous climber makes this decision to share the evidence difficult, but in the interest of Everest history, the photo follows.
