The first mother and daughter to successfully climb Mount Everest (aka Sagarmāthā; Chomolungma), the world's highest mountain, were Cheryl and Nikki Bart (both Australia) on 24 May 2008. They reached the summit at 4.50 a.m. local time.


Everest represented the final peak on their mission to climb the Seven Summits (the highest mountain on each continent), thus they are also the first mother and daughter to have scaled the Seven Summits. On 22 April 2013, Cheryl also became the first Australian woman to complete the Explorers Grand Slam, after venturing to the North and South Poles (in addition to the Seven Summits).

The first father and son to climb Everest together were Jean-Noël and Bertrand “Zébulon” Roche (both France) on 7 Oct 1990; the first father and daughter were Dendi Sherpa and Ngim Chhamji Sherpa (both Nepal) on 19 May 2012; and the first father, son and daughter were Tenzing Dorjee Sherpa, Sonam Tashi Sherpa and Pasang Kanchi Sherpa (all Nepal) on 23 May 2021.
