85-Year-Old Everest Climber Dies in Attempt to Reclaim Record

Min Bahadur Sherchan, 85, died on Saturday afternoon at base camp, in an attempt to climb the Mount Everest. Mr. Sherchan went back to Everest to try to regain the title he claimed at age 76, in 2008 as the eldest to climb the peak. The record was broken five years later by a Japanese mountaineer Yuichirio Miura who was 80 at the time. Sherchan’s death has prompted the officials in Nepal to consider an upper age limit to climbing the mountain.
