Mallory returns to Everest…

Gexev1072 Well, no, not the George Mallory of Everest fame, lore, and legend, but the Mallory family of Barrie, Ontario, Canada.

Yup, that’s right, the Mallory family – Dan, Barbara, Adam, Alan, & Laura – will head to Everest this spring to attempt to climb the peak via the traditional Southeast Ridge route. They’ll be climbing with Summit Climb and, if successful, will certainly find a place in the record books as the first family to climb Everest.

Unfortunately, the Mallory’s of Barrie have no relation to the Mallory’s of Everest history, or at least none that they know of.

Nonetheless, I wish them luck…Climb high, climb safe, and, most importantly, enjoy the journey!
