Kazi Sherpa

Kazi Sherpa(Nepali: काजी शेर्पा) (Everest summit photo for record climb) as confirmed by the Everest Summiteers Association,[1] and as confirmed by Everest historian Elizabeth Hawley,[2] holds the current speed climbing record on Mount Everest for the South Col Route, from basecamp to the summit, without oxygen from basecamp to the summit. Kazi's record was set on the South Col Route, without supplemental oxygen, without steroid drug assistance (Dexamethasone), and without Sherpa assistance or guide assistance. Set in 1998, his time was 20 hours 24 minutes, from the basecamp to the summit, thereby breaking Marc Batard's previous record set ten years prior in 1988 by 22 hours and 29 minutes.[1][3][4][5]
