Shehroze Kashif becomes the youngest to summit 9 8,000-foot peak
The young, Shehroze Kashif, a Pakistani mountain climber, became the youngest person to reach the top of all nine of the world’s highest mountains when he climbed 8,035m Gasherbrum-II this morning. In less than a month, he broke the world record that Adriana Brownlee had set. Shehroze climbed the world’s 13th tallest peak, Gasherbrum II, at about 9:00 a.m. (PST). Brownlee, who was from England and was 21 years old, was the youngest person to reach the top of nine peaks over 8,001 metres. Adriana reached the top of Pakistan’s Broad Peak on July 20. This was her ninth summit.
Brownlee became the youngest person to climb all ten 8,000-meter peaks when she reached the top of K2 on July 30. After Shehroze comes down from Gasherbrum II, he will try to climb Gasherbrum I, the world’s 11th-highest peak at 8,080 metres. His team thinks he will soon beat this record. On July 5, a young Pakistani mountain climber made it to the top of Nanga Parbat.
This year, he climbed Makalu, Lhotse, and Kanchenjunga in Nepal in less than a month. He had already climbed Everest, K2, and Manaslu by 2021. Broad Peak was the first 8,000-meter mountain that he climbed in 2019. Shehroze Kashif wants to be the youngest climber in the world to reach the top of 14 mountains higher than 8,000 feet. Adriana Brownlee, who is from England and is one year older than Shehroze, is also trying to reach the same goal. Shehroze also called his father Kashif Salman on the phone from the top of Gasherbrum-II to tell him that his trip had gone well.
