Australian climber falls to his death on Ama Dablam peak in Nepal
An Australian climber has fallen to his death while descending a peak near Mount Everest in eastern Nepal.
Michael Geoffrey Davis, 33, from Newcastle, died on Ama Dablam on Thursday. He was part of a group of 15 who were going down the 6,812-metre Himalayan peak.
He plunged to his death after a huge rock fell and damaged ropes he was using to descend the mountain, the Himalayan Times reported. No one else was hurt.
Davis’s body was airlifted to Kathmandu for a postmortem examination, the managing director of Top Himalaya Guides, Tshering Pande Bhote, told the newspaper.
