Even among the tightly knit cadre of high altitude climbers and support people, this group stands out for their cooperation and respect, not only of each other, but for the men they seek to find. I was struck with the haunting beauty of this endeavour, through the glorious photos, the wonderfully descriptive recollection of the '99 participants, and the words from the past men of '24. There is an awe inspiring feeling of monumetalism best typified by Dave Hahn's likening of his first view of George Mallory's body to a statue of ancient Greek or Rome. The tenacity and tenderness of the 99 crew leads one to feel that "fate" conspired that only THIS group, at THIS time, (75 years forward of the tragedy) could rightly be the ones to discover and tell of Mallory's last moments, and with deep respect and a sense of being very privileged, lay their great man to rest.
Truly inspiring, and a delicious winter night read, and reread!
