Now, Everest historian Tom Holzel believes he has pinpointed the location of Andrew Irvine's body, showing up as an "oblong blob" on high-resolution photographs of the mountain.
Presumably from a satellite image? I thought the latest satellites and imaging devices could see enormous detail from very great heights. So I wonder why something close to 6 feet long only shows up as an oblong blob. Unless the body is partially covered in snow and ice.
Anyway. I am reading the Mallory/Irvine book I have again at present. So this will add spice to that reading.
Oh. My conclusion after reading the book the first time was that I was left 100% certain the pair did not summit. Wonder if I'll be left with the same conclusion after my second read of the book!
