Lhakpa Sherpa: The Most Successful Female Everest Climber

(what's a "Modern Worthy"? click here to find out!)
Lhakpa Sherpa ​​has climbed Everest more than any other woman—​and now she’s on the mountain trying for her seventh summit​. So why doesn’t anyone know her name?

Part of why she’s been so reluctant to share her story deals with her horrific divorce battle with her abusive ex-husband, a well-known mountain climber.

Trigger warning for domestic abuse.

[Edit] A couple of readers pointed out as an update to this story that she completed her seventh climb of Mount Everest.
