MALLORY QUOTE Posted by PEAK XV – A Novel By Stephen Shields A quote from mountaineer George Mallory during a press interview prior to his fateful 1924 British Mount Everest expedition. “The first question which you will ask and which I must try to answer is this; What is the use of climbing Mount Everest? and my answer must at once be, it is no use. There is not the slightest prospect of any gain whatsoever. The highest of the world's mountains, it seems, has to make but a single gesture of magnificence to be the lord of all, vast in unchallenged and isolated supremacy. We will stomp to the top with the wind in our teeth.” Learn more about Stephen Shields latest novel the PEAK XV scheduled for release Summer 2019 website: https://www.peakxvstephenshields.com #peakxv #stephenshields #his#historicalfiction #ancientnepal #england #historicalfiction #mounteverest #everest #history #novel #thebuddha #sid#siddhartha #him#himalaya> #mountaineering #gautamabuddha #nepal #exploration #expeditions #georgemallory #mysticism #spiritualism #adventure #drama #hinduism #buddhism #enlightenment #siddhartha #namaste #himalaya #andrewirvine

MALLORY’S EXPEDITION Posted by PEAK XV – A Novel By Stephen Shields Stephen Shields upcoming novel, Peak XV, is loosely based on the 1924 British Mallory Mount Everest expedition. During their expedition the climbers had a difficult time with high winds and deep snows. On June 6 he and a young and less-experienced climber, Andrew Irvine, set off for an attempt on the summit. The two started out from their last camp at 26,800 feet (8,170 metres) on the morning of June 8. Another member of the expedition claimed to have caught a glimpse of the men climbing in the early afternoon when the mists briefly cleared. Mallory and Irvine were never seen again. The British public was shocked at Mallory’s loss. The mystery of their fateful climb has been debated since that day, especially whether Mallory and Irvine had reached the summit. In the 1930s Irvine’s ice axe was found at about 27,700 feet (8,440 metres), and in 1975 a Chinese climber discovered a body that he described as being that of an Englishman. In addition, an oxygen canister from the 1920s was found in 1991. With these clues, an expedition set out in 1999 to search for the two. Mallory’s body was found at 26,760 feet (8,155 metres), and it was determined that he had died after a bad fall; Irvine was not found. It was hoped that the camera Mallory had with him would be recovered and that it might reveal if he and Irvine had made it to the top. Effects such as an altimeter, pocketknife, and letters were found but no camera. His body was buried where it had been discovered.
