Taking to Twitter, Kashif also announced the amazing feat. “This is something super special and being a Pakistani, I feel very proud to share this news with you all,” he said.

The teenage climber said that he has received both records from GWR, thanking the people for prayers. “This is for you Pakistan,” he concluded.
