Nepal News: Chopper crash site spotted; All 24 on-board died

Old - From our mate Alan Arnette site:

On May 21st 2009, at the age of 29, Frank Ziebarth, a German mountaineer living in Calgary, made it to the top of the world from the Tibetan side without the use of supplemental oxygen. By doing so, he became the first German, and also the first Canadian resident to accomplish this Herculean task.

Very sadly, Frank could not make it back to high camp, suffering from hypothermia and obvious lack of oxygen. He was last seen at 8700 meters still determined to go down on his own strength. It was later confirmed by fellow climbers that his body now rest peacefully at the bottom of the third step high on Mount Everest.

Frank was an accomplished 8000m climber who already made it to the top of Shishapangma, Cho Oyu, and Lohtse without the use of oxygen.

His strength, smile, humility and care for others were an inspiration for all his fellow climbers and revealed the true nature of a great mountaineer. He was a born leader.

We, the team who shared his last trip to the highest point on earth, would like to offer our sincere condolences to Christina his fiancée, to his family in Germany and to all his friends all over the world.

Alexandre Paré, Manuel Pizarro and Anna Baranska on behalf of the whole Everest North mountaineering community.
