Everest oxygen failure accidents avoided Summiting Sherpas Set Pair of Mount Everest Records

On Wednesday, a pair of veteran Sherpas each set a record for Mount Everest climbs.

Iswari Paudel of Himalayan Guides Nepal, the company assigned to fix the ropes, confirmed that the team has scaled the mountain.

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

Kami Rita first scaled Everest at age 24, and has made the trip nearly every year since then. He said he wants to do this not to break records or set new ones but because of his passion and zeal to climb the Everest.

Number of times Mr Kami Rita, 48, a professional guide, has reached the Everest summit.

Ms Lhakpa, 44, reached the peak for a ninth time via the northern Tibetan route, her brother Mr Mingma Gelu Sherpa said.

Number of times Ms Lhakpa, 44, who works in a supermarket in CT, has reached the world's highest peak.

She first climbed Everest from South Col in 2000 and since has climbed from the North Col eight times. In her early days, she would help climbers by cooking form them and worked as a porter before she trained as a climber.

She moved to America 16 years ago and says she plans to continue climbing, while keeping her job in the supermarket.

He and his team started climbing last night from South Col (Nepal Side) and reached the summit at around 8:30 am today, according to Pemba Sherpa of Seven Summit Treks, which organised the record expedition.

The twin records come on the heels of Australian Steve Plain becoming the fastest person to conquer the highest mountains on all seven continents.

The climbing season for runs from March through May and hundreds of climbers are now on Everest, trying to reach the top from both the Nepali and Tibetan sides of the mountain.

"This has paved the way for other climbers to reach the summit as well". In the autumn, he guides clients to smaller peaks in Nepal.

Shrestha said a total of 94 climbers reached the summit on Wednesday because of good weather conditions.

For the benefit of those who do not know, it's worth noting that a malfunction between the bottle and mask and ensuing sudden lack of O2 can be extremely unsafe for those who are not acclimatised to those altitudes without supplemental oxygen. Air at the top of Everest contains less than a third of the oxygen at sea level.
