Everesting Record Smashed

Everesting Record Smashed


Ronan McLaughlin crushes the previous record with an incredible time of 6 hours, 40 minutes 

The Irishman climbed the necessary 8,848 metres (29,029 feet) in a blisteringly fast time of 6:40:54, almost 20 minutes faster than the previous world record of 6:59:38 set by America’s Sean Gardner on October 3, 2020.


Sean Gardner sets Everesting Record


This isn’t the first time Mc Laughlin has broken the Everesting record by a considerable margin.

In July 2020 the former-semi-pro-racer-and-coach-turned-tech-writer climbed the height of Mt. Everest in 7:04:41 – more than 20 minutes faster than the previous record, set by none other than six-time Grand Tour winner Alberto Contador.
