 Graham Hoyland to Return to Everest this Autumn

Update 9/5/2001: Graham Hoyland is headed for Everest!

His reports on EverestNews.com.... Did you miss the chance to buy his book the first time ? A second chance coming soon.

Update 8/24/2001: Bits and pieces as we know you want to know more... From Graham 

"can't say too much about the trip yet." 

Well ! Ok but !!!

"But the balloon pilot is David Hempleman-Adams, who climbed Everest in 1993. [OK, we figured that out.] Take-off point is Rongbuk valley. Date around 20th Sept. He will be flying more than half the flight solo. Cameras will be mounted to the basket."


"It's fairly risky."


"Whole thing is dependent upon weather and visibility."


And one of the best quotes we have had in awhile, "If in Base camp... Ask for Graham or Dave. We'll be the guys with the enormous purple balloon."

Update 6/15/2001: Graham leaves for Everest on 9/5/2001. Look for an update on his plans before then.

Graham Hoyland plans to use a balloon in the search. We have asked Graham for an outline of the project for you. We will see how much he is willing to speak on the record about the plan. "We'll be looking for Sandy, though..." Graham 

Stay Tuned

6/21/2001: An EverestNews.com exclusive: Graham Hoyland to return to Everest this Autumn 2001 in search of the clues to resolve the Mystery of George Mallory and Sandy Irvine. EverestNews.com spoke with Graham Hoyland, on the phone a few minutes ago. He is returning to Everest this Autumn for the 6th time! Graham is the great nephew of legendary climber Howard Somervell. Somervell and Mallory were dear friends and one-time climbing partners. They crossed paths on Everest in June 1924, as Mallory and Irvine were making their ill fated attempt at the Summit of Everest. Somervell lent Mallory his Kodak camera in hopes that Mallory and Irvine would succeed in obtaining the Summit. Mallory and Irvine disappeared into the clouds above camp 6 never to be seen alive again. Somervell's camera became a tantalizing clue to one of the enduring mysteries on our age. Did Mallory or Irvine actually reach the Summit of Everest ?

In an e-mail to Everestnews.com earlier in the day, Graham gave us the News of his return to Everest this Autumn. Details cannot be released yet, but stay tuned for what sounds like an unique plan. Graham has expressed his desire that he could be the 16th or 17th climber from the UK to reach the Summit of Everest rather than the 15th. Graham Hoyland in a class act our friends !

Below are several past articles on Graham and the Mallory/Irvine Mystery that have appeared on EverestNews.com. This is far from a complete list, but some highlights focusing on Graham. Take a look.
