Mountaineer calls wife from top of Mount Everest

As if his name weren't impressive enough. British mountaineer Kenton Cool summited Mount Everest for the ninth time on Thursday and called his wife on his cell phone - from the top, according to the BBC and other reports. The network interviewed Cool a day after he returned from his adventure.

Last year, 3G signal coverage became available on Everest.

Cool claimed to be the first to tweet from the mountain as well, but there's talk that that might not be the case, Wired magazine writes.
