A woman who had never even been climbing a year ago has become the youngest Briton to climb Everest.
Bonita Norris, a 22-year-old from Berkshire, scaled the world's highest peak with veteran Kenton Cool, who set a record of his own by becoming the first Briton to reach the summit eight times.
Having decided to take up climbing she reached for the heights, with her first peak being another Himalayan giant, Manaslu, last year.
Ms Norris takes the youngest British climber record from Victoria James - who reached the summit aged 25 - while her climb raised funds for the children's charity Global Angels.
Those inspired by Bonita Norris may wish to head to their nearest Go Outdoors store to invest in some climbing equipment
Ms Norris and Kenton Cool are just two of the Britons holding records connected with Everest.
Other Brits achieving great mountaineering feats in recent years include Yorkshireman Alan Hinkes, who became the first Briton to scale the 14 peaks over 8,000 metres when he reached the top of Kangchenjunga in 2005.
