Andy Politz: Education Speaker

Andy Politz has been climbing for more than 25 years, serving as a mountain guide at Mount Rainier for 12 years (1978-1990). He has gone on mountain expeditions around the world climbing in Alaska, Equador, New Zealand, Nepal, Pakistan and Tibet. He reached the summit of Mount Everest in 1991 via the route Mallory and Irvine attempted in 1924. Politz is an engineering technician for Utility Technologies International and teaches part-time at the Linworth Alternative Program and the Graham School.

The first British attempts on Mount Everest began with a survey of the mountain in 1921. Politz will discuss the 1924 disappearance of Mallory and Irvine, last seen near the summit. That climb marked the end of an era, a period when explorers aimed to reclaim the glory of a time when "the sun never set on the British Empire."

Politz was a member of the Mallory and Irvine Research Expedition and was present when Mallory's body was found in May, 1999. The discovery resulted in a worldwide stir, two TV documentaries and numerous articles. The question "Did Mallory and Irvine reach the summit?" remained, however. The 2001 expedition planned to search the area where Mallory's body was found for the expedition's camera and attempt to find clues to open the mystery of that team's disappearance. The expedition's search ended, however, when they were called on to rescue two teams of climbers unable to get back to their high camp.

Andy was a member of the 99 Mallory and Irvine Expedition as well as the 2001 Mallory and Irvine Expedition. In total Andy has been on 7 Everest Expeditions: 1985 (West Ridge); 1986 (West Ridge); 1988 (Kangshung Face); 1991 (Tibet, Northeast Ridge, to summit); 1993 (Nepal, South Col); 1999 (Tibet, Northeast Ridge); 2001 (Tibet, Northeast Ridge).

Andy is a featured speaker at colleges and universities around the country.   He brings a wealth of experience from his travels abroad and time on Mt. Everest.
