Australian climber Mick Parker (36) died in Kathmandu in the morning of June 4th!

He ascended Cho Oyu in 2003, Broad Peak in 2004, Gasherbrum I in 2007 and just recently Makalu. There was  fine pictured information about his Makalu ascent with British climber Roland Hunter here. It appeared, that he seemed to have a late edema and he sadly died in the morning of June 4th. His father came two days ago to Kathmandu and is now flying back to Australia with Mick's remains.

Our condolences go to his family and friends!
