As he make his way towards objective, challenges came up.

"Up to 7,700m I felt really good and was making progress as planned but then I started to feel unwell, probably from stomach virus. From then on I made slow progress and had to keep stopping to recover. I finally reached the summit at midnight”, Jornet said.

Despite the hindrances, he eventually reached the summit of the world's highest mountain at 9pm.

Agence France-Presse reported that the China Tibet Mountaineering Association, which validates all Everest summits on the north side of the mountain, had yet to confirm Jornet’s feat.
