12/7/07: The Lost Explorer
By Doug Fabrizio
Salt Lake City, UT – By today's standards, George Mallory and Sandy Irvine were ill-equipped to scale Mount Everest in 1924. But their tragic story of determination and exploration remains a model for climbers today. It's a story that took Conrad Anker to Everest 75 years later, and he describes finding Mallory's preserved body in a catchment basin with "a deep sense of awe and inspiration." Anker joined Doug last year to talk about the humility of knowing that the peaks are always stronger. (Rebroadcast)
