Fatal accedents

A 71 y/o Japanese male climbed Mt. Fuji with his elder brother on 28th. He stayed at a mountain hut on Yoshida-trail 8th station. He restarted to climb next morning and fell on the ground after reaching the summit. He is said to be an experienced climber. ( He has been climbed over 50 years.) At that time, the weather of summit was windy & rainy.

Another 71 y/o Japanese male joining a climbing tour was dead around the 8th station today. More detail later.
