Mountain Legends Sherpa, Cool Reach New Heights on Everest

British climber Kenton Cool and Nepali guide Kami Rita Sherpa have achieved a remarkable feat by breaking their own records for the most climbs of Mount Everest, the world’s highest mountain.

According to hiking officials, Cool, 50, and Sherpa, 54, successfully reached the summit for the 18th and 29th time, respectively, on separate expeditions guiding their clients.

Their accomplishment has garnered praise from the mountaineering community, with Garrett Madison of Madison Mountaineering describing Sherpa as an “amazing guy” who “just keeps going and going.”

Both climbers used the Southeast Ridge route to the summit, a path pioneered by the first summiteers, Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay, in 1953.

Sherpa first climbed Everest in 1994 and has done so almost every year since, except for three years when authorities closed the mountain for various reasons. He climbed the mountain twice in 2023.

Nepal has issued 414 permits, each costing $11,000, to climbers for the current climbing season, which ends this month.
