Busy Everest season gets underway with 30 summits

Busy Everest season gets underway with 30 summitsEverest’s summit season got off to a frantic start Monday with at least 30 climbers reaching the peak, including a Chinese double amputee and an Australian who set a new world record. Xia Boyu, a 69-year-old hit by frostbite on Everest over four decades ago, and Steve Plain, who was nearly paralysed by an accident four years ago, were among the first to summit the world’s highest mountain. Xia’s summit is also notable, coming just months after Nepal’s government tried to ban double amputees and blind climbers from scaling its peaks.
