An American climber died on the descent from the summit of Mount Everest on Monday, taking the number of dead or missing mountaineers on the world's highest mountain to 11 during the current climbing season.

Most of the deaths have been attributed to exhaustion and tiredness, exacerbated because a crowded route to and from the summit has led to delays.
