Grant is the 31st Kiwi to climb Mt Everest
A quick check in the records ( valid up to 2009) show that unless there have been more Kiwi’s on the top since then, Grant would be the 31st. And if not, he would easil be in the first 40 Kiwis to have done the feat, joining such illustrious climbs like Edmund and Peter Hillary, Rob Hall, Gary Ball, Mark Whetu et al. Some of these have made multiple ascents, so my statement above just covers specific individuals, and not ascent numbers.
Hope you have enjoyed the ‘ride’ so far….
