The Chinese climber who lost both his legs to frostbite on Everest four decades ago is hoping to finally reach the summit of the world's highest peak, after Nepal's top court overruled a government ban on double amputees climbing its mountains. / AFP PHOTO / PRAKASH MATHEMA / TO GO WITH Nepal-China-mountaineering-disabled,FOCUS by Paavan MATHEMA (Photo credit should read PRAKASH MATHEMA/AFP via Getty Images)
