The outdoor community lost a brave warrior as three-time World Champion ski mountaineer Stéphane Brosse suffered a fatal fall while traversing the Aiguille D’Argentiere on June 17, 2012. Brosse headed out early Sunday morning with fellow athlete and friend Kilian Jornet to traverse Mont Blanc. The two were working on the Summits of My Life project, the first of a four year endeavor of speed record attempts for six different peaks worldwide.
While Brosse was on his way to Barbey Couloir a snow cornice gave way under his weight, causing him to fall more than 600 meters.
