On this day in 2010 I had the honor of climbing with Sibusisu to the top of Everest.
He has since gone back to also climb the North Ridge, as well as doing the 7 Summits .
This year he just happens to be headed up to Everest Base Camp – and then running down, in the Everest marathon. Certainly a man of many talents.
More importantly, when we caught up for dinner last year in Kathmandu, I remembered how much fun he is. And, like Sir Edmund Hillary, has gone on from his Everest success to assist a number of very worthwhile causes.
This is an article last year in Outside online article profiling Sibusisu on Everest.
