A British man has claimed the record for the most ascents of Mount Everest by a foreigner after standing on the summit of the world’s tallest mountain for the 16th time.
Cool, 48, reached the summit of the 8,849-metre (29,032ft) peak overnight on Saturday with Rebecca Louise, a fitness entrepreneur who was completing the feat for the first time.
Kenton describes his climb to the top of the world with a full moon lighting his way and the sun coming up just as he arrived at the summit.
Kenton tells ITV News that standing on top of the world is ‘amazing’ and that Everest is ‘a very special mountain and a fun mountain to climb’.
Kenton says that they had the ‘perfect’ day to summit. He describes the full moon, clear skies and stars all over the place. He adds that he’s got ‘more Everests left’ in him.
A mountaineer once told he would never walk again unaided after shattering both his heels has scaled Mount Everest for a record-breaking 16th time, the highest number by a non-Sherpa.
Paul Oakenfold and Kenton will host the ‘highest party on Earth’ in April 2017 for charity and help fundraise for the people of Nepal
