Shehroze is now the youngest climber in world to summit 10 peaks over 8,000m


Pakistan’s young climber Shehroze Kashif has become the youngest mountaineer in the world to scale 10 peaks of over 8,000meter. 

20-year-old Shehroze conquered the 8,080meter Gasherbrum-1 to set a new record. 

Gasherbrum-1 is the 11th tallest mountain in the world. 

Shehroze’s father, Kashif Salman, told the media men that Shehroze had summited the mountain top at 4:09 am on Friday morning. 

The climber has now successfully scaled all five eight-thousanders in Pakistan. He beat Britain’s Adriana Brownlee’s record of being the youngest mountaineer to achieve the feat just 12 days after her achieving it. 

Back in July 2021, he scaled K2, the world’s second-highest peak, and earned the title of becoming the youngest mountaineer.

A resident of Lahore, the incredible accomplishment from Shehroze came about two months after he became the youngest mountaineer to summit the world’s highest mountain, Mount Everest as part of the SST Expedition 2021. 

Moreover, the passionate climber first started climbing at the age of 11, conquering Makra Peak (3,885meter). Afterward, he successfully scaled Musa ka Massalah (4,080meter) at the age of 12, followed by the Chembra Peak (4,600meter). 

Moving from there, he aced Minglik Sar Shimshal (6,050meter) at the young age of 13, the K2 Gondogoro La K2 Base Camp (5,585meter) at age 14, and Khurdopin Pass (5,890meter) at 15 years of age. 

This was not the end and at the age of 17, the climber scaled the 8,047meter Broad peak and received the title ‘The Broad Boy’, and reached the top of Khusar Gang-Alpine Style (6,050m) at 18 years of age. 

Furthermore, Shehroze conquered Mount Everest, the world’s highest peak at 8849meter, at the age of 19 and become one of the youngest in the country to do so. 

Earlier this year, the mountaineer had reached on top of Lhotse, Kanchenjunga, and Makalu in Nepal in a time span of less than a month before climbing Nanga Parbat.
