Markus Kronthaler lost on Broad Peak

(11.07.2006)

Austrian Markus Kronthaler died of exhaustion on the upper slopes of Broad Peak. Marcus and team mate Sepp Bachmair set off from C3 towards the summit on Thursday. However, they only managed to reach the foresummit and bivouacked there on Friday night. They reportedly continued to the main summit early Saturday, but got too exhausted to reach C3 on descent, according to BroadPeak.org.

Marcus died sometime Friday/Saturday night – Sepp was helped down to C3 by the Polish team.

The Austrian team had been on the mountain for weeks, and this was their last chance to reach the summit, before running out of time.
