Solve a Mystery 75 Years in the Making – Who First Climbed Everest

In 1924 George Mallory and his team attempted to climb Mount Everest. They were last spotted only 800 feet from the summit, before they disappeared completely. It is unknown whether Mallory died before he made it to the top. If he and his team reached the summit, they would have been the first people to have climbed Everest. Mallory’s body was never found, until climber Conrad Anker discovered it frozen and intact 75 years later.
