Mont Blanc Avalanche

Postby Overlandman » Tue 13 Aug, 2013 10:35 pm

Two Italian climbers have died after being swept away by an avalanche on the Mont Blanc massif in the French Alps.

Six climbers were caught up in the avalanche as they ascended Mont Blanc du Tacul, at an altitude of 4,200 metres, local authorities said.

Three of the six were buried under the snow, including the two Italians who were later found dead. The third climber was rescued alive.
