Hoyland has a close association with Everest. He climbed the mountain in 1993 and is the grandnephew of Howard Somervell, who loaned his camera to George Mallory for his summit day. Hoyland was a member of the 1999 Mallory & Irvine Research Expedition and returned in the fall of 2001 to look further for clues relating to Mallory and Irvine. Here is the most detailed reconstruction of what happened after the two English climbing legends left the camp on that fateful day. Combining personal experience, the physical evidence found on the mountain and an insight into the hearts and minds of the two climbers, Hoyland produces the most compelling description of what actually happened on that day and the answer to that most intriguing of questions - did they actually climb Everest?
