I thougt that only little more than 1000 had summitted, in total -- but certainly, many more climb ON Everest every year without reaching the top (or even intending to). That's how astronaut Karl Henize died, as you recall. 

And hundreds of people -- exact figure uncertain -- have died there, including Karl -- another potential analog to space tourism.

  Why not spend a few more to fly into space - if you can afford it, of course.  And over one thousand people climb the tallest mountain on Earth every year now, when just over 50 years ago only 2 had done it.
