George Mallory (18 June 1886 – 8 or 9 June 1924). During the 1924 British Mount Everest Expedition, Mallory and Andrew "Sandy" Irvine (on the left) disappeared somewhere high on Everest's North-East ridge. The pair's last known sighting was only about 800 vertical feet from the summit. Mallory's fate was unknown for 75 years, until his body was discovered on 1 May 1999. Whether Mallory and Irvine reached the summit before they died remains a subject of speculation and continuing research.

Charles Evans and Tom Bourdillon try to gather their strength upon their return to Camp VIII from the South Summit. Problems with Evans' oxygen equipment and a lack of time had prevented them from making an attempt on the Summit itself. During their descent from the Southeast Ridge, Evans had slipped, dragging Bourdillon with him and they had been lucky to arrest their fall.
