Sherpa guide scales Mount Everest for record 17th time

A veteran Sherpa guide scaled Mount Everest for a record 17th time Wednesday, beating his own previous record, a mountaineering official said.

Appa, who goes by one name, reached the 8,850-meter (29,035-foot) summit at 8:45 local time with seven other Sherpas and a Western climber, said Ang Tshering, president of the Nepal Mountaineering Association.

Appa was leading a team of Sherpas on Everest on a charity climb to raise education funds for children of the Nepalese mountain guides.
