The British alpinist Kenton Cool has successfully completed his record-breaking 16th Mount Peak Everestthe maximum number of ascents of allSherpa.

The 48-year-old Mr Cool reached the summit of the 8,849-meter high peak on Saturday night along with British fitness entrepreneur Rebecca Louise, who did the feat for the first time.

In his previous 15 trips to Everest, he has been a guide to other famous alpinists, including Sir Ranulph Fiennes and guide Ben Fogl.

Fogle described Mr. Coola, who lives in Gloucestershire with his wife and two children, as “one of the greats of all time” and added: “Once upon a time climbing Everest was a test – 16 times climbing it is heroic.”

In addition to his 16 Everest peaks, he previously became the first person to complete the triple crown of Everest, made up of Everest, Lhotse and Nuptse, with one click without returning to base camp.

He was also the first British guide to take the party to the summit of K2, the second highest mountain in the world.

He was told he would never walk without help again after breaking both heels in a 1996 climbing accident. He has defied these predictions with a year of surgery and therapy, but he still has chronic pain.

Mr Cool told the PA news agency via satellite phone before leaving for the summit that the situation looked good, with “excellent weather forecast” and “excellent team”.

“Too much self-confidence on a mountain like Everest is a dangerous thing, so nothing is guaranteed until you return to base camp,” he said.

“I’m keeping my fists up that we’ll be at base camp in about three days and maybe we can have a beer and celebrate Rebecca’s first peak, my 16th peak and the successful descent of the entire Sherpa team.”

A post on Mr. Coola’s Instaram page read: “VREH SUCCESSFUL

“Kenton & Team have reached the summit of Chomolungma, Sagarmatha, Mt Everest.

“This is the 16th KC summit, a Sherpa record.”
