    Default Sentence structure

    Can anyone help me on this sentence...this sentence doesn't look right, I know I have to take some words out or change them around...

    1. They would have to cross mountains that they had not even seen them yet.

    I think I need to take out the second they and add ever been seen by them yet?

    "They would have to cross mountains that they had not even seen." "Yet" is redundant.

    I don't agree that "yet" is redundant, it has a different meaning without it.
