CLEAR weather and low winds on Mount Everest yesterday allowed at least 20 climbers to scale the peak from the Nepalese side while dozens more were reportedly moving up the icy slopes, an official said. Blizzard-like conditions in the past weeks had forced climbers to wait at base camp in tents and postpone plans to head up the mountain.

An avalanche left a Sherpa guide missing and presumed dead, while two Austrian climbers with him were rescued. May is considered the best time to climb the mountain.
