Scaling Everest at 85

Eighty-five-year-old Nepalese Min Bahadur Sherchan wants to regain his title as the oldest person to scale Mount Everest.

"I want to be the oldest person to scale Everest again, to be an inspiration for humankind, a boost for the elderly people and an encouragement for youths," Mr Sherchan said at his home in Kathmandu.

He first scaled Everest in May 2008, when he was 76, but his record was broken by then 80-year-old Japanese climber Yuichiro Miura in 2013.



On an ego trip at 85

amd Nepalese are suppose to be in touch with their inner yum 

His chances of making it at his age would be slim I would imagine.  

However I wish him all the best. And good luck with his climb. If he still feels up to it then why not.

Climbing the Everest is really challenging even for youngsters. But I really appreciate his willingness and determination to climb the Everest even at this age. That is something we should all get inspiration from.  

I wish him all the best but I really hate competitiveness who gives a hoot just do things to ENJOY


This is his second attempt..I wish him the best of everything...

Even if he doesn't make least he will slumber peacefully on the mountain he loves...

Probably will make it Thea. He's an ex Gurkha, a tough bunch.

Keeping tabs on this guy Banjo because a mate of mine wants to introduce me to some climbing, so if Min Bahadur can do it, I keep telling myself, I can LOL

This is the information I am looking for. This article is clear and easy to understand. I'm learning more about this. Hope you bring more things related to it. Thanks a lot!
