I have added a new poll question for the month of February.

Is the decision to ban solo and disabled climbers from Mount Everest a good or bad idea?

Please take your vote at Mount Everest The British Story

Results from last months question

Was the summit of Mount Everest reached in 1924?

Yes by Mallory & Irvine 36%
Yes by Mallory only 10%
Yes by Irvine only 2%
No 52%
