May 15, Kathmandu: A British climber Kenton Cool from Gloucestershire, South West England scaled the world’s highest mountain for the 16th time breaking his own British record for the most Mt Everest summits early this morning.
According to his tracker, he with his team climbed Everest this morning. His summit push was delayed due to high winds.
In 2013 Kenton also holds a record as the first British mountaineer who climbed Mt Nuptse, Mt Everest, and Mt Lhotse.
He has broken his own British record for the most summits of the Everest. Last year, Kenton climbed Mt Lhotse in less than 29 hours after scaling Mt Everest.
He reached the summit point at around 5:25 am Nepal time.
Rebecca Louise Smith from UK and Elia Saikaly from Canada also scaled Mt Everest today morning.
Phillip James De-Bergor (UK), Luke Josef Rollnik (Australia), Patrick Connor (Australia), Jeffery Andrew Leech (Australia) also scaled Mt Everest.
Other climbers also climbed Mt Everest. More information is yet to come.
