The most successful female climber of Mount Everest broke another record in reaching the top of the mountain a ninth time.
The climber is Lhakpa Sherpa. She is a 44-year-old single mother who lives in the United States with her three children. She was born in Nepal and has been climbing for many years.
Sherpa was guiding about 50 people up the mountain when she completed her latest climb on May 16. This broke her own record for the most climbs of Mount Everest by a woman. Her first successful attempt came in 2000, and she completed her eighth climb last spring.
She told the Associated Press the ninth climb was her hardest one yet. She said severe wind and snow forced the group to wait a few days before making their final climb to the top.
One member of the group was Sherpa's brother, Mingma, who operates a mountaineering company in Nepal. Only two of our clients did not make it, but most of them made it to the top and were happy, Sherpa reported.
Lhakpa Sherpa says she hopes her climbs will inspire women everywhere to keep reaching for their own dreams. If an uneducated woman who is a single mother can climb Everest nine times, any woman can achieve their dreams.
Sherpa never got the chance to get a full education. She began working at a young age in jobs providing assistance and carrying supplies for Everest climbers. She now works as a dishwasher at a Whole Foods Market in West Hartford, Connecticut.
In an interview last month with espnW, Sherpa said she never does much preparation for her Everest climbs.
My training is here...washing dishes, taking out garbage. I want a hard job, she said. She told the publication that many climbers see Everest not just as a physical test, but also as a spiritual experience.
We believe Everest is a god, she said. The Earth and the mother. Mount Everest and I have a connection. I feel it talking when snow blows on the top of the mountain.
Sherpa told the Associated Press she still feels healthy and fit enough to keep mountaineering for years to come. People who are 70 years old are still climbing Everest, I am no where there, she said. She plans to climb the mountain again next year.
Nepalese mountaineer Kami Rita holds the record for most completed Everest climbs. The 48-year-old has reached the top of the mountain 22 times.

这位攀登者就是拉赫巴(Lhakpa Sherpa) 。今年44岁的她是一位单亲母亲，跟三个孩子在美国生活 。拉赫巴在尼泊尔出生，多年来一直在攀登高峰 。
拉赫巴引导近50人攀登埃佛勒斯峰，与此同时，她在5月16日完成了自己最近的一次攀登 。这次攀登让她打破了自己的纪录，即攀登埃佛勒斯峰次数最多的女性 。她首次尝试成功是在2000年；去年夏天，她完成了自己的第八次登峰 。
她在接受美联社采访时表示，这第九次登峰也是她目前为止最为艰难的一次 。她表示，凛冽的风雪迫使团队等了几天才登上峰顶 。
攀登队的一名成员是拉赫巴的母亲明玛，明玛在尼泊尔经营着一家出售登山装备的公司 。我们的客户中只有2个人没有登上峰顶，但大多数人都做到了，他们很开心，拉赫巴这样说道 。
拉赫巴表示，她希望她的攀登经历能激励世界各地的女性坚持追求梦想 。如果一个没有受过教育的单亲妈妈也能9次登上珠穆朗玛峰，那么任何女性都可以实现自己的梦想 。
拉赫巴没有机会接受完整的教育 。她很小的时候就开始从事服务行业，为珠穆朗玛峰的攀登者提供装备 。现在，她在康涅狄格州西哈特福市的一家全食食品超市做洗碗工 。
我平时的工作也是一种锻炼……洗碗、送垃圾 。她说，我想要做辛苦的工作 。她在接受某出版社采访时表示，很多攀登者不仅将攀登珠穆朗玛峰视为体力的考验，也视作精神上的历练 。
她说，我们认为珠穆朗玛峰是神一样的存在 。地球母亲、珠穆朗玛峰和我之间有一种联系 。雪花飘落在珠穆朗玛上的时候，就像是在跟我讲话 。
拉赫巴在接受美联社采访时表示，她仍然感觉身体状态良好，未来还有很多年可以登山 。70岁还攀登珠穆朗玛的人也大有人在，我就更没有理由放弃了，她这样说道 。她打算明年再次攀登珠穆朗玛 。
尼泊尔攀登者卡米 瑞塔(Kami Rita)是攀登珠穆朗玛次数最多纪录的保持者 。48岁的他已经22次抵达过珠穆朗玛峰顶 。
