Sherpa Kami Rita Sets Record with 22nd Successful Climb of Mount Everest

Everest oxygen failure accidents avoided

Kami Rita made it to the peak at 8.30 am on Wednesday, breaking the previous record of 21 ascents set by Apa Sherpa and Phurba Tashi Sherpa of Nepal, both of whom have retired from mountaineering expeditions.

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.

The 48-year-old Sherpa guide from Nepal has climbed the 29,035-foot peak almost every year since starting at 24 years old.

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

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. She was making her way down to the advanced base camp, he said.

Without having any formal training on mountain climbing, Lhakpa, who grew up with 11 siblings, first climbed Mt Everest from Nepal side in 2000.

Facebook suspends 200 apps for misusing data, privacy probe continues
The company reportedly used the Facebook data it obtained to create data models for clients, including the Trump campaign. In its latest response, Facebook added a little more colour - although the answer is unlikely to satisfy privacy experts.

More than 340 climbers will attempt the Everest summit in the coming weeks.

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

The first summit wave happened Monday when some 50 mountaineers and Sherpa guides scaled it.

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

He and his team started their expedition on Tuesday evening. "There are no reported injuries".

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 risky 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.
