Japanese Climber Nobukazu Kuriki Found Dead on Everest

Kuriki was found dead in his tent this morning at Camp 2. In his Facebook posts over the previous few weeks, Kuriki had complained of pain and a persistent cough. Yesterday he had posted from Camp 2 at 7,400m:

“Namaste, I’m here at 7,400m now. I feel the pain and the difficulty of this mountain, and I go up and up. I want to proceed very carefully.”

According to the sources, he was discovered by Sherpa climbers. Efforts are now underway to remove his body from the mountain.

This had been Kuriki’s fifth attempt at Everest. A cause of death has not yet been announced.
