George Mallory - Mummified Body Found on Mt. Everest

In June of 1924, while approaching the summit of Mt Everest with his climbing companion Andrew ("Sandy") Irvine, George Mallory (the famous mountain climber) disappeared.

For 75 years, or so, no one knew what had happened to the pair (or where their bodies were located).

Then ... Mallory's mummified body was found by Conrad Anker in 1999.

Learn more about it in this video clip which includes an interview with Anker.  Follow a group of climbers who retrace Mallory’s last steps.
