Overview

Durante tres cuartas partes de siglo, esto es lo único que se ha sabido con certeza: poco después del amanecer del 6 de junio de 1924, dos miembres de la expedición británica al Everest salieron de sus tiendas en el Col norte, una cornisa de roca, hielo y nieve situada a 7.065 metros de altura y barrida por el viento, entre la enorme mole de propio Everest y el monte contiguo, el Changtse, de menor altitud. Dos días más tarde. a las 12.50, fueron vistos en la cresta nororiental de la montaña, "subiendo con paso firme hacia la crima."

Nunca volvieron.

Hasta ahora, las pistas sobre lo que sucedió a estos dos exploradores del Everest eran escasas y confusas. Hasta ahora, nadie sabía si llegaron a la cumbre. Hasta ahora, nadie sabía dónde ni cómo perecieron.

Los Fantasmas del Everest es una historia de detectives de primer orden. Es la historia no s&#243lo del &#250ltimo ascenso de Mallory e Irvine, sin tambi&#233n la del equipo de escaladores e investigadores que hallaron el cad&#225ver de quiz&#225 el m&#225s gran monta&#241ero ingl&#233s de todos los tiempos, y descubrieron la verdad de los hechos.
