An expert mountaineer cracks Everest’s most intriguing mystery – did Mallory and Irvine reach the summit before they perished on its slopes?

Last Hours on Everest

Way too much detail! Starts off fairly interesting and about 3/5s through the book it becomes over the top with endless details that made me skim through pages rather than reading them. Would have made a nice short story in about 100 pages.
