Sherpa guide climbs Everest for a record-setting 22nd time

Kami Rita first climbed Everest as a 24-year-old in 1994.

A 44-year-old woman, Lhakpa Sherpa, who lives in Connecticut, United States, climbed for the ninth time on Wednesday, breaking her own record of the most summits by a woman, her Nepali hiking company said. He has also climbed numerous region's other high peaks, including K-2, Cho-Oyu, Manaslu and Lhotse.

Previous year seven people lost their lives on the world's highest peak, while 449 summited from the Nepal side and at least another 120 made it to the top from the north side in Tibet. Fellow guides Apa and Phurba Tashi had previously been tied for the record at 21 but have both retired from climbing.

Rajeev Shrestha of the Seven Summit Adventure agency in Kathmandu said he received a message from the base camp about the successful climb. She now lives in the U.S. and works at a departmental store.

This year, her climb was sponsored by the outfitter Black Diamond, who provided gear and monetary support.


The route to the summit was opened up by a team of Sherpa guides earlier this week.

Dozens of climbers are expected to reach the summit on Wednesday, taking advantage of the good weather on the mountain, according to Shrestha.

Drama on the the highest slopes of Everest this morning where, during a summit bid on the Tibetan side of the mountain, a group of mountaineers belonging to the Alpenglow expedition led by America's Adrian Ballinger encountered serious issues with their supplementary oxygen regulators. The mother of 11 has already been acknowledged by the Guinness Book of World Records for climbing the Everest eight times. He lost his legs after a failed Everest attempt in 1975.

More than 60 mountaineers including Sherpa have successfully climbed the Everest since the beginning of the climbing season in 2018.
