"Two climbers have been stranded in a storm on the Grandes Jorasses in the Mont Blanc range on the French/Italian border since Thursday the 3rd of November."

Mountain guide Olivier Sourzac, 47, and his client Charlotte Demetz, 44.
They did not make it. Very sad.
Age is a matter of mind and if you don´t mind it does not matter!

Tragic end...
In France thousands of climbers followed in live the outcome of this drama.
