Sherpa guide breaks record for most Everest climbs

According to alpinist and mountain chronicler Alan Arnette, who year is following the events on the highest mountain on in the world this year for the United States magazine Outside Online, at an altitude of 8500 meters 10 of the 39 regulators used by clients and Sherpa suddenly stopped working.

A 48-year-old Nepali mountaineer climbed Mount Everest for a 22nd time on Wednesday, creating a new record for the most summits of the world's highest mountain, hiking officials said.

The problems occurred during what is being described as the third "summit wave" of climbers pushing towards the summit in this pre-monsoon season, after the ropes were fixed from both the Nepalese and Tibetan sides of the mountain.

She first climbed Everest from South Col in 2000 and since has climbed from the North Col eight times.

Mountaineering has been his family tradition.

He completed the seven climbs in 177 days - nine days quicker than the previous record - after reaching the top of Everest on Monday (May 14).

Kami Rita first scaled Everest at age 24, and has made the trip nearly every year since then.

Lhakpa, who lives with her daughters in Hartford has climbed Everest at 6 am from the North Col (Tibet Side) with a few climbers from her team.

"This has paved the way for other climbers to reach the summit as well". He plans to summit the mountain at least three more times - meaning he'll set three more records. Phurba Tashi, 47, retired from high-altitude climbing in 2013 but still works at Everest's Base Camp helping organise expeditions.

The route to the summit was opened up by a team of Sherpas earlier this week. More than 340 foreign climbers along with several of their local guides are attempting to climb Everest this month.
