Tragic death after summiting occurred on the 8000er, Dhaulagiri. Highly experienced Greek climber Antonis Sykaris is reported to have died after summiting around 7,400m on the 8,167 meters (26,795 ft) peak. Sykaris was 59-years-old. He was climbing with Dawa Sherpa using the logistics of Seven Summits Treks and summited at 12:40 pm local time. Just this past weekend 22 people summited as I previously reported. Sykaris was on a mission to submit all 14 of the 8000ers.
