Mountaineer Kenton Cool and his team donned Mask-arade Personalised Masks at Everest base camp, 5,364 metres above sea level. Cool honoured a 1924 pledge made by Olympian Lt Col Strutt who, after famously attempting to climb Mount Everest, announced that one day he would take one of his gold medals back to the summit.
