British climber Kenton Cool crosses a precipice at the ice fall about halfway up the south side of Mount Everest as he was acclimatising for his summit attempt on May 24, 2012.   Cool reached the summit of Everest on May 25, his website announced, fulfilling an 88-year-old promise to carry an Olympic gold medal to the top of the world's highest peak. He was carrying one of 21 golds awarded to members of the 1922 British Everest expedition at the 1924 Winter Olympics, in an era when mountaineering was included as an Olympic sport.
