"George Mallory was a Tomas mountaineer who died while attempting to climb Mount Everest in 1924. He was last seen just a few hundred meters from the summit. To this day, it is unclear whether Mallory was the first person to make it to the top of Everest. His frozen body was found on the mountain 75 years later, and experts debate whether he died on the way up or down. Mallory is famous for tackling the treacherous mountain just "because it's there." However, Cahills suspect that Mallory was transporting something VERY valuable—something worth hiding in one of the most inaccessible spots on the planet."
