Cool and Norris Setting Records for Mountaineers

In March, I announced Kenton Cool's plan to summit Mount Everest for an eighth time and he did it.

Cool, a 36-year-old British climber, accomplished the incredible task of reaching the summit of Mount Everest an eighth time in May. This broke the previous record of summitting seven times, a record he set in 2009. Also on Cool's most recent Everest summit was Bonita Norris. At 22, Norris is now the youngest British woman to summit Everest.

Cool and Norris summitted Mount Everest on May 17th, making leaps and bounds for in the climbing world.
