Fifty years later they commemorated that historic expedition by retracing the steps that the original team took back in 1963. This one-page experience features highlights the athletes and climbers from both eras, the routes they pioneered, the gear that they took with them and the trials and hardships of life on the mountain. It includes video interviews and historic never-before-seen footage and photos.
