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

'Do you think one day we will see robots climbing on Mount Everest?'

Please take your vote at Mount Everest The British Story

Results from last months question

Mallory’s body was found with rope around his waist. How do you think he parted from Irvine during his fall?

Rope cut with a knife 18%
Rope severed by a rock 18%
Rope broke due to the strain 65%
