Mountaineer known as Swiss Machine had been initiatives to ascend Everest and nearby Mount Lhotse next month
The renowned mountaineer Ueli Steck, known for his rapid ascendings of the Alps which gave him the name the Swiss Machine, has died in an accident in Nepal near Mount Everest.
Steck, who was 40 and one of “the worlds largest” celebrated climbers of his generation, was killed on Sunday after descending to the foot of Mount Nuptse, a smaller meridian in the field, according to Mingma Sherpa of the Seven Summit Treks company that had organised the expedition.
Sherpa told Reuters that Stecks body had been recovered and was being taken to Kathmandu.
Kamal Prasad Parajuli, an official with Nepals department of tourism, established Steck had died while climbing Nuptse and that he had proposed an ascending of Everest.
Parajuli mentioned Steck, who clambered Everest in 2012, had declined and descended 1,000 metres( 3,300 hoofs) in the Western Cwm along the normal roadway to Everest.
In a statement, the climbers pedigree said the circumstances surrounding his death was currently unsure. The kinfolk is infinitely heartbreaking and asks that the media be prohibited from conjecturing about his death out of respect for Ueli, “theyre saying”. As soon as reliable information becomes available, the national media will be informed.
His death induced eulogies from the climbing community. The Catalan mountaineer Ferran Latorre said he and two others had been clambering Everest when Steck died.
Yesterday “were in” having lunch together, he wrote on Twitter, including: We still have no messages to excuse which is something we feel. And I guess the authorities concerned will never.
The mountaineer and blogger Alan Arnette did: I cant express what a loss this is to the mountaineering community. Ueli loved Nepal, Everest and the Himalayas.
