I still hope Andrew 'Sandy' irvine is found one day. His climbing partner George Liegh Mallory was found 75 years after they disappeared in 1999 by American Conrad Anker

I am 13, and it has been a lifelong dream for me to climb Mt. Everest. You may think I will change my mind later, but you don't even know how bad I want to climb it. If I live then I will climb K2 and Kanchenjunga, but I don't want to climb them as bad as Everest. If I climb Everest and live, climbiing K2 and Kanchenjunga will not be a neccesity in life for me. But for now, climbing Everest is definite neccesity in life for me.
