    A British man has died on Mount Everest, marking the tenth death in two months as a record number of mountaineers rush to conquer the world's highest summit during an unusually brief window of good climbing weather. A 41-year-old British climber, Robin Haynes Fisher, reached Everest's peak at 8:30 a.m. local time on Sunday morning, and collapsed and died shortly after, at about 150 meters below the summit, according to Murari Sharma, Managing Director at Everest Pariwar Treks. The deaths come amid reports of massive crowding on the mountain, especially around the Hillary Step, where climbers have to go single-file.
