Everest mountaineer warned of overcrowding before dying on climb
A British mountaineer who recently died on Everest warned of overcrowding at the summit in his last post to social media. Robin Haynes Fisher died of what appeared to be altitude sickness at 28,215 feet, while descending from the summit May 25. "I am hopeful to avoid the crowds on summit day and it seems like a number of teams are pushing to summit on the 21st," he wrote in a captioned Instagram post May 13.
