Nepali climber Min Bahadur Sherchan has replaced Japanese climber Yuichiro Miura in Guinness World Records as the oldest man to climb Mount Everest.

Sherchan climbed the 8,848-meter peak on May 25, 2008, at the age of 76 years and 340 days, but was eclipsed by Miura, who climbed it two days later at age 75, because he failed to furnish documents needed to back his claim.
