Erhard Loretan passed away, on a day similar to many of his others. He was ascending, with a client, the summit ridge of Grünhorn (4043m) in the Bernese Alps, in his Switzerland, when it happened. A gust of wind, or snow collapsing underfoot, or something which perhaps we'll never know, proved fatal: Erhard has left us forever, while his client is currently in critical condition in hospital. In or what might be one of life's ironies, yesterday happened to be Loretan's 52nd birthday. A special day which he celebrated as normal: in the mountains, doing a job which coincided with his greatest love. Yes, because Loretan was certainly a great alpinist (one of the greatest of the modern era) but also an impassioned Mountain Guide.

For the past 26 years 16 expeditions have tried and failed to climb one of pakistan's 8,000 meter peaks in winter. On february 2, 2011, Simone Moro, Denis Urubko and Cory Richards became the first.
