1920s Stylee Everest Ascent!

From the BBC:

An international team of mountaineers has climbed Mount Everest using equipment designed in the 1920s.

They retraced the steps of two British climbers who disappeared just short of the summit in 1924.

The team says its success shows that George Mallory and Andrew Irvine may have been the first to climb the peak.

They say that it adds weight to the theory that the pair may have made it to the top in 1924, 29 years before Hillary and Tenzing's historic feat.
Amazing effort! My hat is off to Anker and Houlding and their team, as well as to Mallory and Irvine who it would now appear first conquered the peak.
