Sherpa guide climbs Mount Everest for the 24th time

A Nepali sherpa reached the summit of Mt. Everest a record 24th time on Tuesday, his second ascent in just a week, and he has set his sights on one more climb before he retires. Kami Rita Sherpa, 49, reached the 8,850 meter (29,035 feet) summit by the traditional southeast ridge route. The route was pioneered by New Zealander Sir Edmund Hillary and Sherpa Tenzing Norgay in 1953.
