b]"BECAUSE IT'S THERE.'[/b] George Herbert Leigh Mallory is said to
have given this in reply to the question 'Why do you want to climb
Mount Everest?' On his third expedition in June 1924, Mallory and
his climbing partner, Andrew Irvine, disappeared on the North-East
ridge during their ascent, having been sighted only a few hundred
meters from the summit. In 1993, in a small Nepalese store, Makoto
Fukamachi, photographer for a Japanese expedition to conquer Mount
Everest, stumbles across an old camera - a Vest Pocket Autographic
Kodak Special. Could it be Mallory's camera? Did it hold the secret
of whether Mallory and Irvine made it to the summit almost three
decades before Hillary? Taniguchi's realistic art and Baku's
tireless script will take you to such heights that mountaineers
only dream about.
