Abstract

Initiative, creativity, and resolve represent both the pillars of the Wilderness Medical Society (WMS) and the story of George Mallory. His journey from humble beginnings to his rise to become one of history's most legendary mountaineers is a testament to the impact of great mentors as well as the development of Mallory as a mentor himself. In this light, the path of George Mallory in mountaineering and the role of WMS in wilderness medicine share a common theme. This essay is not only a tribute to George Mallory but also a testament to the importance of mentorship and the role of WMS in inspiring mentorship and education to future pioneers.
