Tomaz Humar lost

 
 
 
Slovenian climber Tomaz Humar was found dead today, after he was injured and stranded while climbing a difficult route up to Langtang Lirung north wall.
 
Humar was one of the most recognized high-altitude solo climbers of the world; he won several mountaineering awards including Piolet d’or in 1996. On 2007 he established a new route on  Annapurna  south face.
 
Viki Groselj, a fellow Slovenian mountaineer and a good friend, described Humar as a "mountaineering genius whose accomplishments have been admired by the whole world."
"Above all, he was a supreme climber who moved the boundaries of possible and he had an amazing gift and amazing strength."
