Shehroz Kashif Becomes World’s Youngest Person To Conquer K2

Nineteen-year-old Shehroz Kashif has become the youngest person ever to scale K2, the world’s second-highest mountain peak, according to the Alpine Club of Pakistan.

Shehroz reached the 8,611-meter mountaintop at 8:10 am on Tuesday.

The 19-year-old began summiting at the early age of 11 and climbed several mountains including the world’s 12th highest mountain, 8,047-metre Broad Peak at the age of just 17, earning the title “The Broad Boy”.

In May, he made the record of being the youngest Pakistani to summit Mount Everest, the world’s highest mountain at 8,849 meters.

Currently, Shehroz also has the record of the youngest person to have scaled both K2 and Mount Everest.

Prime minister Imran Khan congratulated Shehroz on his accomplishment:

The Embassy of the United States also congratulated the young mountaineer on his achievement:

Many young climbers have tried to climb K2 in recent days.

Sajid Ali Sadpra, who became the youngest to scale K2 at the age of 20 in 2019, was part of an expedition sent to find the body of his father, Ali Sadpara, who went missing along with two other foreign mountaineers in February.
