(Hong Kong, 1 Jun, 2022) – EquitiesFirst, the global asset-based financing corporation, today celebrated the record-breaking, successful 2022 summit of Everest by legendary 14 Peaks’ mountaineer Nimsdai Purja MBE (“Nims”).
Between May 7 and May 16 2022, Nims set two new World Records. The first record is for speed. Nims summited Everest, Lhotse and Kanchenjunga, in eight days, 23 hours and 10 minutes without oxygen. The second record is for completing the Everest to Lhotse traverse without oxygen in 26 hours.
Nims said today, “I am delighted to summit Everest. We made great progress and the weather conditions were excellent. At every step of the way, my focus was on guiding and helping our team achieve their new possible. My mission has always been to inspire people and to show what human beings are capable of. This is what gives me energy and excitement; showing people that nothing is impossible. I want to inspire everyone to know they can achieve their dreams and thank EquitiesFirst for their partnership.”
EquitiesFirst Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Mr Al Christy Jr said today, “Setting two new World Records in under nine days proves what we have always known: Nims is a force of nature. We are delighted Nims has successfully summited Everest as well as Lhotse and Kanchenjunga in record time. As I have mentioned, Nims’ perspective that, with a determined approach and positive mindset, everything in life is possible, aligns precisely with our own business philosophy.”

Al Christy started out by helping save a third-generation, family-owned apple farm in Michigan, USA by providing the capital needed to secure their business and legacy.

Nims achieved global recognition through the global hit Netflix documentary “14 Peaks: Nothing is Impossible” which recorded him summiting all 14 of the world’s highest mountains in just six months and six days in 2019. Born in Nepal, and formerly serving in the British Special Forces, Nims’ 14 Peaks journey started with climbing Annapurna, Nepal in April 2019 and ended at the summit of Shishapangma, China in October 2019.
Nims stands alone in terms of Big Mountain success. Only 44 climbers have achieved the feat of consecutively ascending all 14 of the world’s highest peaks. The previous world record stood at seven years, 10 months and six days. Nims achieved the same feat in just six months and six days.
