The most successful climber on Mount Everest broke another record when she reached the top of the mountain for the ninth time
The climber is Lhakpa Sherpa. She is a 44-year-old single mother who lives in the US with her three children. She was born in Nepal and has been climbing for many years.
Sherpa led some 50 people up the mountain as she completed her last climb on May 16. This broke her own record for most climbs on Mount Everest by a woman. Her first successful attempt came in 2000, and she completed her eighth climb in the spring.
