Auer, Lama, and Rosskelley likely killed in Avalanche

Are we going to talk about this?  Parks Canada confirms that they have recovered the bodies of the 3 climbers lost to the avalanche.  David Lama was a competition superstar before heading to the mountains, Hansjorg Auer had probably the most impressive free solo up until the El Cap solo (and with much much less preparation!), and Rosskelley was the youngest American to summit Everest at the time.

Jens, please, you cannot ignore the death of David Lama, Hansjörg Auer and Jess Roskelley.
Report it!
Sure, 8a is not a site about alpinism, but David Lama was a world class competition sport climber and boulderer as well.

Austria's finest and best Alpinists died :-(. So sad - but at least they died whilst doing what they loved most.

Arnoud Prinz: I know. Its a shame. The lack of response just goes to show what a joke a big part of climbing has become. This is very sad. RIP guys

on Babsi Zangerl Insta account you'll find a very moving memory about her partnership with Hansjörg Auer...
