Foreign climbers scale Everest
KATHMANDU, Nepal -- Officials say one Mexican and two British climbers, along with three Nepalese guides, have scaled Mount Everest, the first foreigners to reach the summit in two years.
Ang Tshering of the Nepal Mountaineering Association said the six climbers reached the 29,035-foot peak early Thursday and are heading to lower camps.
The British climbers are Kenton Cool and Robert Richard Lucas, and the Mexican is David Liano Gonzalez.
A group of nine Nepalese guides fixing ropes for their foreign clients reached the summit Wednesday.
Last year's season was canceled after an avalanche triggered by a powerful earthquake killed 19 climbers at base camp. In 2014, 16 Sherpa guides were killed by an avalanche above the base camp.
