The PGHM of Chamonix received the alert at around 5.50 pm, on 29 June.

A German mountaineer who left to do the Drus in the Mont-Blanc massif unscrewed and fell more than 100 meters (328 ft).

Unfortunately, the victim died and his body was recovered under the old Charpoua scales.

A second mountaineer, also of German origin, was taken care of by the rescuers. The two men were evolving together but "were not roped up", according to the PGHM of Chamonix.
