Yuichiro Miura

Yuichiro Miura is a Japanese alpinist who in 2003, at age 70, became the oldest person to reach the summit of Mount Everest. This record was later broken by himself.

This achievement is listed in the Guinness Book of Records. He was unable to make the descent after reaching the top, and was airlifted from Advanced Base Camp at 6500 meters, not walking down to the Base Camp at 5364 metre. Famous alpinists, like Ken Noguchi, question Miura's achievement and say that you can’t call a climb “complete” unless you walk all the way down the mountain, too.
