What was Yehoshua doing on Har Sinai?

1.

Rashi: Yehoshua accompanied his Rebbe as far as the border of the mountain, 1 where he pitched his tent and awaited Moshe's return. 2

2.

Ramban: He was one of the seventy elders who accompanied Moshe part of the way out of the camp. 3 Now that Moshe left them to ascend the mountain, Yehoshua accompanied him up to the border.

Since that was as far as he was allowed to go (Rashi).

2

And we see from the Pasuk in Ki Sisa, Sh'mos 32:17 that he was not with the people when Moshe returned (Rashi).

3

Ramban: Nevertheless, he was not punished together with the elders in Tav'eirah (Refer to 24:11:3:1*), because he was worthy of Divine visions and all prophecy (Refer to 24:11:2:3).

Why does the Torah inform us three times that Moshe ascended the mountain?
