Hari Berger Dies While Ice Climbing

The Alpinist is reporting that three time world ice climbing champion Hari Berger has fallen to his death while climbing near his home in Salzburg, Austria. Berger was known in the climbing community for establishing many tough routes all over the World on both ice and rock.

More sad news for the climbing and outdoor community. Berger leaves behind his girlfriend, who is in her ninth month of pregnancy with their first child. It seems I’ve been saying this a lot lately, but keep them in your prayers.
