In completing his remarkable feat, the engineer turned mountaineer broke the existing record of 126 days, which was set previous year by Polish climber Janusz Kochański. He became stuck in the frigid low-oxygen environment near the top of Everest and suffered severe frostbite, losing both his feet.

Plain, the Australian climber, complained of long queues on the way to the summit. "But no. (I'm looking at you Mr Blue Helmet)", the new world record holder wrote in a blog post today.
