Tragic News: Piotr Morawski

Newsflash: Piotr Morawski lost on Dhaulagiri

( Story updated 7:05 am CDT) Polish ace climber Piotr Morawski has perished on Dhaulagiri, local media have just reported...

Very sad news, Piotr was part of the group with Me, Peter Hamor, Dodo Kopold, Gerlinde Kaltenbrunner, Daniel Bartsch, and David Gottler that tried to make a speed ascent of K2 via the Cesen in 2007. I did not know him well, but he was a very nice guy that was very strong in the mountains. My condolences to his family and friends.
