Renowned climber Alexey Bolotov dies in Everest descent
Bolotov and his Kazakh climbing companion had ascended Everest for the third time, and upon descent, used a new route on the south-western wall of the mountain. Bolotov's rope became frayed from the friction of a sharp rock. It ultimately broke, leading to his death.
Prior to his death, Bolotov received awards for ascending the west wall of Makalu in 1997 and for the first ascent of the north wall of Jeanne in 2004. He also received the Golden Ice Axe mountaineering award and was named a Knight of the Order of Courage.
