In June 1924, British mountaineer George Mallory and his partner Andrew Irvine were about to conquer Mount Everest peak. It was the third British expedition to the highest mountain on Earth. They had already reached base camp VI and they set out to the top on June 8, when Mallory left some notes to his colleagues: “Dear Noel, We'll probably start early tomorrow (8th) to have clear weather. It won't be too early to start looking out for us either crossing the rockband under the pyramid or going up skyline at 8.0 p.m. Yours ever. G Mallory” Mallory and Irvine were last seen through the fog climbing a rock just 250 meters below the summit. They never came back. It remains a mystery whether Mallory and Irvine were the first men to reach Mount Everest. A frozen Vestpocket Kodak camera waiting to be found in the Everest since 1924 might have the answer.
As a tribute to one of the most legendary stories of alpinism we have developed a very special product: ROWSE's Himalayan Salts. We also asked ROWSE’s talented friend Elliot Beaumont to illustrate the Himalayan mountain range for our new collectible postcard.
