An Afterclap of Fate

Mallory on Everest


The perennial mystery of Mallory and Irvine on Everest receives an inriguing twist in a reconstruction of their fateful climb written virtually in Mallory's own words. Drawn from the climber's letters, writing and Mallory's background as a classicist, this is a new forensic examination of the evidence and points to one firm conclusion.

This is the most detailed and convincingly though account so far of what happened on Mallory's last climb on Everest. The events of what actually occurred on that final summit assault in 1924, Sir Chris Bonington has called mountaineering's greatest mystery.
