Iswari Poudel of Himalayan Guides Nepal said he got a phone call from Mount Everest base camp saying that Plain along with two guides reached the 8,850-metre peak at around 7 a.m. and were descending.
The 36-year-old Plain, from Perth, began his mission by climbing Mount Vinson in Antarctica on January 16. He followed that with Mount Aconcagua in South America, Mount Kilimanjaro in Africa, Mount Carstensz Pyramid in Papua New Guinea, which covers Australia and Oceania, Mount Elbrus in Europe and Denali in North America.
A surfing accident in 2014 nearly left Plain with multiple injuries but he recovered to continue mountain climbing.
A group of eight Nepalese Sherpa guides reached the summit yesterday, fixing ropes and clearing paths for other climbers to begin their ascent to the peak.
Some 340 foreign climbers and many Nepalese Sherpa guides are attempting to climb Everest this month.
The popular spring season runs from March until the end of May, after which weather conditions on the mountain begin to deteriorate.
There are only about a couple of days of windows of good weather on the highest part of the peak in May, when climbers rush to attempt their way to the summit.
