Ascending the eastridge
SP-Member Sebastian Hamm ascending the eastridge of Piz Palü.

About 2 years later Cyrill Rüeger (SP member Cyrill aka Digitalis), his wife Tanja (SP member Bergelfe) and a mountain-friend died climbing this passage. They fell of this flank roped together and into the rocky coloir underneath leading 400m down to Palü-glacier. It is expected a slide of fresh snow caused the tragedy on 13th of June 2009. Cyrill and his wife had much experience and he had passed this route already some years ago.
