Japanese climber dies on t. Everest Veteran Japanese climber Nobukazu Kuriki died on Mount Everest Monday as he attempted his eighth ascent to the world's tallest peak.

Officials said his body was found in his tent at about 24,000 feet. Kuriki, 35, had failed in seven previous attempts to climb the 29,000-foot mountain with a plan which doesn't include oxygen.

He lost all but one of his fingers to frostbite during an attempt in 2012.

Sunday, Nobukazu said on his blog he would retreat down the mountain without reaching its summit, citing unspecified health issues.

"I feel the pain and difficulty of this mountain," a post said.
