In February, 2013 a big avalanche (1000 m long and 150 m wide) caught four climbers. Rescuers soon found three of them (all were injured), one was found later, dead. It was Edo Retelj, the well known alpinist who also participated on a few Himalayan expeditions.
"After the first glass, you see things as you wish they were. After the second, you see things as they are not. Finally, you see things as they really are, which is the most horrible thing in the world."
--Oscar Wilde on Absinthe
