Mount Everest is a daunting and majestic mountain, standing tall at an impressive height of 29,028 feet (8,848 meters). Located within the Himalayas on the border between China and Nepal, it has been beckoning daring mountaineers for centuries. With many potential dangers such as avalanches and the effects of altitude sickness along with extreme weather conditions, only around 3,000 people have managed to summit Mount Everest since it was first climbed in 1953.
Adding his name to this list of exceptional climbers is 21-year-old Australian Rex Pemberton.
