Amazing feat. I take my hat off to this guy.

He's up there with my favorite Japanese adventurer - the 70-something man who sailed single-handedly around the world.

I'd be humbled to be in the presence of both men.

I have a friend like this, at least I hope he is still alive. The danger is always present and nature does not care how good you are.

Anyway, hats off to this guy. I've said it before but the Japanese mountaineers I've met are as tough as nails (I mean "really tough"). I'd climb with them anytime.

@jessebaybay You said it.

Mount Everest grows at about 1/2 of an inch per year. So each person that climbs Everest actually surpasses the previous yearly record by around 1/2. ;)

In 2007 the mountain (Mount Gashabrum) blew him away-Almost! Congratulations on having courage and determination to come back and reach your goals.
