According to his management office, Miura plans to reach the 8,850-meter (29,035-foot) peak on Thursday, May 23 to be the world's oldest person to climb the world's highest peak. His rival, 81-year-old Min Bahadur Sherchan, from Nepal, who nabbed the record just before he could in 2008, was at the base camp preparing for his own attempt on the summit next week.
