Climb retracing the steps of Mallory successful





An international team of climbers has scaled Everest by retracing the steps of two British men 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. The climbers wore replica 1920s clothes for all but the last part of the climb.
