First person to climb the Himalayas?

The Himalayas are a mountain range with many, many peaks. They started attracting mountain climbers in larger numbers in the early 1900s. The first recorded ascent of a Himalayan peak was Yevgeniy Mikhaylovich Abalakov who climbed Ismoil Somoni Peak in 1933. The next major ascent of a Himalayan peak was by Noel Odell and Bill Tillman who climbed to the summit of Nanda Devi in 1936. Obviously the people indigenous to the Himalayas had been climbing in those mountains long before these folks ever started, but their climbing was mostly incidental to getting from one place to another rather than to see who could climb the highest and no records were kept so it is tough to say who actually was "the first person to climb the Himalayas".
