Mingbo Eiger: Bodies of Missing Climbers Found

A strong team of Nepali guides, led by Ang Norbu Sherpa, recently resumed the search after a few days of bad weather.

Over the weekend, they found the remains of the three young French climbers.

It appears that an avalanche may have hit the climbers.

All three have been identified and airlifted to Lukla, the French newspaper Le Dauphine reports.

Pachoud, Miloche, and Arfi were part of a larger French team, the Groupe of Alpine Excellence (GEAM).

They were climbing new routes in Nepal’s Khumbu valley, focusing on Cholatse and satellite peaks in the Kangtega area, very close to Ama Dablam.
