George Mallory, the British mountaineer who disappeared while close to the summit of Mount Everest in 1924, exchanged love letters with a 19-year-old woman he had never met in the months before his death. Dr John Semple and Professor Kent Moore believe they have discovered a crucial part of the puzzle as to why Mallory and Irvine did not return from their historic expedition, 29 years before Everest was scaled by Sir Edmund Hillary and Sherpa Tenzing Norgay in 1953. "The disappearance of Mallory and Irvine is one of the most enduring mysteries of the 20th century, yet throughout the debates surrounding their disappearance, the issue of the weather has never really been addressed," said Prof Kent Moore of the physics department at the University of Toronto. In another message, Mallory told Ms Holmes that it was lucky they had started getting to know one another without actually meeting.
