Tsang Ying-hong, 45, from Hong Kong, climbed to the summit from base camp in 25 hours and 50 minutes to become the fastest female climber. The record of 10 hours 56 minutes was set by guide-sherpa Lakpa Gelu. Arthur Muir, 75, reached the peak earlier this month, breaking the record set by another American, Bill Burke, at age 67. Both returned safely Sunday from the mountain, where climbing teams had struggled with bad weather and difficulties amid a coronavirus outbreak.
An accident while climbing Everest in 2019, when Muir injured his ankle falling down a ladder, didn’t stop him from trying to climb the peak again. He began climbing late in life – age 68 – and said he was scared and anxious on his latest adventure.
“I was just surprised when I actually made it to the top, but I was too tired to get up, and in my photos from the summit I’m sitting up,” he said.
