Why do old people are often the ones who try to climb Mount. Everest?

Wouldn't it be a better idea to climb the mountain when you're still young, strong and athletic? I've seen documentary of people climbing the Everest and most of them are in their late 30 all the way to early 60.

Yes, you could climb Everest while your young and fit but a older climber has probably got a lot of climbing experience behind him or her. I personaly dont think any age is right or wrong. If your up to the job in hand at the age of 18 or 70 then why not give it a go!
