On Saturday, the 52-year-old Nepali mountain guide, Kami Rita Sherpa, broke his previous world record of 25 ascents of the world's tallest mountain, which he set last May. He has officially climbed the mountain 26 times. Kami Rita didn't make it to the top on his first attempt in 1992, he did, however, finish the climb for the first time two years later.
