A 42- year-old Connecticut woman climbed Mount Everest for the seventh time on Friday, breaking her own record for the most amount of times any woman has climbed the world's highest mountain, a hiking official said.
Lhakpa Sherpa reached the 29,035-foot peak from the Tibetan side, said Rajiv Shrestha of the 7 Summits Adventure company, which organized her expedition. She was accompanied to the top by a Nepali guide.
"She has broken her own record," Shrestha told Reuters.
Sherpa first climbed Everest in 2000. She took a breaking from climbing after her sixth completed summit in 2006.
Sherpa, who was born in Nepal, is one of 11 children. One of her brothers has climbed Everest eight times, and one of her sisters was once the youngest female Everest climber, Yahoo reported.
Sherpa works as a part-time housekeeper in Hartford, Connecticut, and as a worker at a 7-Eleven convenience store in the state, the New York Post reported.
