Lhakpa Sherpa scales Mt Everest nine times breaking own record

Everest oxygen failure accidents avoided

Meanwhile, Lhakpa Sherpa also reached the summit Wednesday, marking her ninth trip up the mountain.

"The icefall is obviously a unsafe place to be, especially later on in the season and with increased temperatures experienced in the Himalayas due to climate change", Phil Crampton of the climbing company Altitude Junkies told the Everest blogger Alan Arnette earlier this year.

"I did not start climbing to set a world record", he said last month, before setting out for the mountain.

Mr Kami Rita, 48, was one of six sherpas who took seven clients to the summit from the Nepali side, Mr Mingma Sherpa of Seven Summit Treks, who organised the expedition, said. Ani Lhakpa Sherpa summited from the North and the 44-year-old has now set a new female record, beating the record she set a year ago.

Meanwhile, a 69-year-old double amputee climber from China flew on a helicopter from Everest to Kathmandu on Wednesday, two days after climbing the mountain.

Kami Rita first scaled Everest at age 24, and has made the trip nearly every year since then.

Before leaving the Everest base camp, Kami had announced that he intends to climb Everest 25 times.

Tesla, whose future depends to a large extent on the success of its new Model 3 vehicle , could do without any more negative PR. Musk tweeted that while the eye tracking had been on the table, it was rejected for its ineffectiveness rather than cost.

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

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

A boom in climbers has made mountaineering a lucrative business since Sir Edmund Hillary and sherpa Tenzing Norgay made the first ascent in 1953.

Weather turned favorable Tuesday night when scores of climbers made a summit push targeting to reach the top Wednesday morning.

The rapid growth in the climbing industry has accompanied complaints of overcrowding on the mountain and fears that inexperienced mountaineers could run into trouble.

"They are searching for him on the way down", he said of the team that has just reached the summit.

Climbers use supplementary oxygen to combat altitude sickness.
