Two Nepali Sherpas have broken their own world records for the most Everest summits by a man and a woman, reaching the world's highest peak for a 22nd and ninth time respectively. The 44-year-old extended her own record for the most climbs by a woman.

"Kami Rita Sherpa reached the summit this morning at around 8:30 a.m. local time along with other climbers", Gyanendra Shrestha, an official at the Department of Tourism under the Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation, told Xinhua via telephone from the base camp.

Lhakpa, who lives with her daughters in Hartford has climbed Everest at 6 am from the North Col (Tibet Side) with a few climbers from her team.

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. In past years, climbers would have to navigate the icefall two to three times, but now many have cut back, turning to other safer peaks with similar heights for their early training.

He said he wants to do this not to break records or set new ones but because of his passion and zeal to climb the Everest.

The route to the top of Mt. Everest was opened Sunday when eight rope-fixing Sherpas stood atop the mountain.

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

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