Summiting Sherpas Set Pair of Mount Everest Records

Kami Rita set a new Mount Everest record by climbing Mount Everest on Wednesday for a 22nd time while a female climber made it to the top for the ninth time, each setting a new record on the world's highest mountain, officials said.

With the ascent of 8,848-meter high Qomolangma, 48-year-old Sherpa has set a new record by climbing the world's highest peak for maximum times.

He made his first ascent of the Everest in 1994 when he was 24 years old.

Similarly, Lhakpa Sherpa, 45, has also broken her own record by successfully climbing Everest for the ninth time, the most by a woman in the world, confirmed Mingma Gelu Sherpa of Seven Summit Treks.

From the Chinese side of the mountain, Lhakpa Sherpa, 44, also reached the summit Wednesday for a record ninth time, shattering the record for women she set previous year.

The team reached the summit on Sunday afternoon while fixing ropes for foreign climbers, who will begin this week to ascend the mountain. He has also climbed numerous region's other high peaks, including K-2, Cho-Oyu, Manaslu and Lhotse.

Scot Peterson maintained that he believed the gunshots were coming from outside the school. The president added that Peterson was either a "coward" or froze under extreme pressure.

Apa, a 58-year-old guide who uses only one name, retired in 2011 and moved to Utah.

According to Sherpa, she wants to climb Mt Everest for at least 10 times. She now lives in the U.S. and works at a departmental store.

She joined her first Everest expedition in 2000. In her early days, she would help climbers by cooking form them and worked as a porter before she trained as a climber.

While many Everest climbers train for months for the arduous journey, Sherpa credits the physical demands of her job and the fact that she was raised up above 13,000 feet for her ability to climb "off the couch".

Shrestha said a total of 94 climbers reached the summit on Wednesday because of good weather conditions. He lost his legs after a failed Everest attempt in 1975.
