Kami Rita Sherpa does it again...and again!!!

Big news from the top of the world—Kami Rita Sherpa made history by summiting Mount Everest not once, but twice this season, bringing his total to an incredible 30 successful ascents!

For those who aren't familiar, Kami Rita Sherpa is a seasoned mountaineer from Nepal with a career that spans decades. He's been scaling Everest since the early 1990s, and his latest achievement is nothing short of astounding.

To put this into perspective, climbing Everest once is an extraordinary feat in itself. Doing it 30 times is a whole new level of superhuman determination and skill. It's like he's got the mountain on speed dial!

What's particularly impressive about Kami Rita's latest climbs is that he managed to achieve both summits in a single season. That's double the adventure, double the challenge, and double the celebration for the mountaineering community.

Beyond the sheer number, Kami Rita Sherpa's accomplishment is a testament to his deep connection with the Himalayas and his unwavering commitment to the Sherpa tradition of guiding and climbing. He's not just breaking records; he's setting a standard for perseverance and dedication.

As we toast Kami Rita's success, let's also acknowledge the support and expertise of the entire Sherpa community, without whom many of these climbs wouldn't be possible. Their knowledge of the mountains is unparalleled, and they continue to play a crucial role in every Everest expedition.

Thank you Kami Rita Sherpa for trusting OuterU to protect your face in the toughest environments this season. We were super stoked to see you not only wearing a FLEX and new this season, the bala!
