Sherpa climbs Everest twice in a week for record 24th

Kathmandu (AFP) – Only last week Nepali mountain guide Kami Rita Sherpa set a new record by climbing Everest a 23rd time. For good measure, he did it again yesterday, expedition organisers said. “This is historic. He made his record climb this (yesterday) morning, guiding a team of Indian police,” Mingma Sherpa of Seven Summit Treks told AFP. More details in Wednesday’s Borneo Bulletin.
