Build a 29,029 foot fence and…

19 May 2013

Via Asian Trekking, at 4:35 am Nepal Time today (which would have been yesterday here), 33 year old Mexican alpinist David Liaño González became the first person ever to climb Mt. Everest from both the Tibet and Nepal side in the same season. On May 11, he reached the summit from Nepal (accompanied by Nepalese Sherpa Samden Bhote), and yesterday, from Tibet, with John Tsang and Pasang Dawa Sherpa arriving ten minutes later.

Apparently, this is a BFD in the alpinist world, but it just goes to show you that no matter how high the border barrier, for a Mexican it’s a challenge, not a deterrent.
