Two Record Climbers – level 3
Two record-setting climbers landed in Kathmandu, the capital of Nepal, this weekend having returned from Mount Everest.
One of them is a Sherpa guide who has scaled Mount Everest for a record 22nd time. Forty-eight-year-old Kami Rita was welcomed with bouquets and ceremonial scarves. He is already planning his next trip, and he intends to climb until his retirement age (which is still yet to come).
Another welcome was received by Australian Steve Plain who has become the fastest climber to scale the highest peaks on all seven continents. He completed the feat in 117 days, having started at Antarctica’s Mount Vinson. Unlike Kami Rita, he is looking forward to going home and resting.
