It has been reported, that Cristina Castagna summited Broad Peak (Edit: actually the Rocky Foresummit!) together with her companion Giampaolo Casarotto on Saturday, but fell to her death on descent.

She was born December 23, 1977. Last year she was the first Italian lady climber, who ascended Makalu (2008-05-11). Earlier she also ascended Shisha Pangma Central-Peak (2004-09-27), Gasherbrum II (2005-07-21) and Dhaulagiri I (2007-04-29).

Our condolences go to her family and friends!
