73-Year-Old Woman Climbs Everest
A 73-year-old Japanese woman became the oldest female to climb Mount Everest today, reports AP.
Tamae Watanabe reached the summit this morning with four companions after an all-night climb. Best part: Watanabe held the previous record, too—after a climb she made a decade ago. The oldest person to climb Everest is a 76-year-old Nepalese man who set the mark four years ago.
