Video Tribute to Mallory & Irvine

I came across this video the other day on YouTube. Quite a nice tribute to Mallory & Irvine, and including some fascinating archival footage from the 1920’s and 1930’s.

Also in the mix are clips from a modern reenactment of elements of the Mallory & Irvine story…not sure where they came from, but they are interesting as well.

The creator of the video, Escalador78, has also put together a nice video montage paying tribute to Hillary and Tenzing. Enjoy!

    Hi Jake,

    as far as I can tell, the clips of the modern reenactement come from the spring 2000 spanish “Al filo de lo impossible” (“To the edge of the impossible”)expedition. Oscar Cadiach played Mallory, Alberto Cerain Irvine. They made a summit attemt in period (1924) clothing: Cadiach turned back at ca. 8450 m due to the cold, Cerain reached the base of the second step before retreating. All in all an amazing accomplishment!

    Greetings,

    Ralph
