Chamonix Climber Dies

This Monday afternoon, a German mountaineer who was looking to climb the famous granite face of Les Drus, fell and died.

The climber was 22 years old and was a german national.

The PGHM were alerted by a second climber at 17hr30 and were quick to scramble to the scene, the young man fell on the slippery loose rocks around the old ladders of the Charpoua refuge.

The young men were not roped together on the section in which the fall took place.

Our thoughts & prayers go out to his friends & family.
