That is terrible news. I have mixed feelings about my previous comment . . .

Now someone needs to write a book about his amazing life.

Well...

He pushed the limits the likes that no one else did. He most assuredly knew what he was getting himself into on each of his adventures.

He died doing what he loved the most... and that folks is a true honor for anyone.

He definitely had some balls and perseverance the likes of no one else.

That is why I respect him so much and always will.

Thanks Tomaz for the example that few will ever match...

So sorry to hear this. He was absolutely among the very best of today's alpinists.
Pen and I will never forget his hilarious recount of the South Face of Dhaulagiri solo climb while he was the keynote speaker at the AAC meeting at Snowbird (?) in 2002 (?). My condolences to his family and all his Slovenian climbing friends

Or like Cristina Castagna put it:
To me, there's no better way to leave this word than doing something I love.

RIP both of you.

I met Tomaz some years ago at Ouray, Colorado. It was in a coffee house as we were both heading out to the ice. I introduced myself, adding that I admired his climbing. The man shook my hand so vigorously, seemingly putting his entire body into it, that I thought he would rip my arm off at the shoulder. It was the kind of handshake you give your best friend in the world after a 20 year absence. I'll always remember what an instantly likeable person he was.

Rest in peace, brother.
