Everest 2021Lhotse

Kenton Cool, Tim Mosedale and Jon Gupta add Lhotse to Everest

Just 29 hours after summitting Everest, British climber Kenton Cool has now scaled Lhotse to add to his record-breaking feats.

Cool reached the World’s fourth highest peak at around 11am local time, May 12th.

Kenton has broken his own British record for the most Mt Everest summits early yesterday morning and he also holds the record of being the first British mountaineer to climb Mt Nuptse, Mt Everest and Mt Lhotse in a season, in 2013.

Jon Gupta has also claimed the historic Everest / Lhotse double.

His GPS tracker placed him at the Lhotse peak at 1.29pm Nepal time with Jon also completing the feat via the Reiss Couloir.

Dorjee Gyalzen Sherpa, Rebecca Ferry, Chhetan Dojree Sherpa and Lakpa Wongchu made up the team from Madison Mountaineering.

Tim Mosedale and his Sherpa, Tenji, completed the twin peaks too.
