Mount Everest: Kami Rita Sherpa summits for the 29th, Kenton Cool for the 18th time

Kami Rita Sherpa
Kami Rita Sherpa – climbing Everest again and again

The first summit wave on Mount Everest is rolling. After a team of ten Nepalese climbers – as reported – fixed the ropes to the summit on Friday evening local time, the first commercial teams with their clients also reached the highest point on earth at 8,849 meters today. The Nepalese operator Seven Summit Treks announced the summit success of a 20-member team, seven clients and 13 Nepalese companions.

Among the latter was Kami Rita Sherpa. This was his 29th time on the summit of Everest. No one has scaled the highest mountain on earth more often than the 54-year-old from the village of Thame in the Khumbu region.

Most ascents as a non-Nepali

Kenton Cool can still claim to be the non-Nepalese with the most Everest ascents. The 50-year-old Briton stood on the summit for the 18th time today.

As nothing to the contrary has been reported, it can be assumed that both Kami Rita and Kenton climbed with bottled oxygen.
