Everest Climber & High Altitude Leader
Kenton Cool is one of the world’s leading high-altitude climbers and an elite mountain guide with a total of 17 successful Everest summits. He is also the holder of the historic ‘Everest Triple Crown’ conquering the peaks of Nuptse, Everest and Lhotse in one continuous push from base camp.
"The Best Mountain Guide in the World" Sir Ranulph Fiennes Bt OBEAdd to my shortlist
In 2023, Kenton broke his own record and achieved his 17th summit of Everest making him the most successful non-Sherpa on the mountain in history. This is all the more impressive when you learn that he was told he would never walk unaided again after breaking both his heel bones in a climbing accident when he was 19. Kenton was selected to fulfil ‘The Olympic Games Pledge’ in 2012 whereby a century-old promise made by Great Britain to Baron Pierre de Coubertin to place a 1924 Olympic Gold Medal on the Everest summit was completed four weeks before the London 2012 Opening Ceremony. Kenton is an IFMGA (International Federation of Mountain Guides Association) qualified mountain guide and provides a highly professional and personalised guiding service.
