Pinnacle of achievement; celeb WATCH.

A "FLASHMOB" of mountaineers gathered to mark the 60th anniversary of Sir Edmund Hillary's historic ascent of Mount Everest.

It's 60 years since Sir Edmund and Tenzing Norgay became the first men to reach the 29,028ft (8,848 metres) summit on May 29 1953.

Their sons, Peter Hillary and Jamling Tenzing Norgay, joined mountaineers Sir Chris Bonington, Stephen Venables and Doug Scott, as well as Kenton Cool, who earlier this month became the first person to scale the three peaks of Everest's Western Cwm in one climb, at Stanfords bookshop in central London for a signing of a newly-released book.
