10th death in 2 months reported on Mt. Everest amid long wait times to descend

The world’s highest peak has seen heavy traffic this season.

A British man has died on Mount Everest, marking the tenth death in two months as a record number of mountaineers rush to conquer the world’s highest summit during an unusually brief window of good climbing weather.

A 41-year-old British climber, Robin Haynes Fisher, reached Everest’s peak at 8:30 a.m. local time on Sunday morning, and collapsed and died shortly after, at about 150 meters below the summit, according to Murari Sharma, Managing Director at Everest Pariwar Treks. The Himalayan Times reported that Jangbu Sherpa, a guide with the same expedition, also fell ill and was brought to a camp at lower altitude.
