This is our little corner of the web where we will be sharing ideas. What we don’t want is for people to go three years between courses and get a bit rusty. In most circumstances that may be OK, but what if a loved one, or even a perfect stranger, needs your help and you have forgotten what to do?
This is where we can all stay up to date, so should we need to call on those skills, you may just save a life.
Tom Holzel's latest on Mallory & Irvine:
The final time line "The mystery is about to be solved," historian Tom Holzel told ExplorersWeb. "And perhaps this coming spring." After years of researching Mallory and Irvine's 1924 final climb on Everest - mounting the first search expedition in 1986, checking hi-res mapping images, interviewing Everest summiteers, comparing testimonies and theories, and weighing all possible scenarios - Tom has managed to reconstruct, minute-by-minute, Mallory and Irvine's final hours. And there is a major new clue: a different eye-witness account of the sighting of Irvine's body.
