 Pepe Garces

We have lost another great one... We received the news from Carlos Pauner on Sunday that Pepe Garces, who had summitted Everest (91), K2 (01), Cho Oyu (97), G I  and G II (99), and Manaslu (01), has fell on Dhaulagiri and have died.

Carlo Pauner Summitted K2 with Pepe on 7/22/2001, e-mailed us to tell us the sad news.

Hi EverestNews.com, 

"Carlos Pauner, from Spain. I climbed K2 this year with Pepe Garces, but in the last few hours we have known that Pepe has felt on Dhaulagiri and has been killed.

It is a very sad news but unfortunately has been confirmed from base camp.

Thank you for your help when we went to K2."

Best regards, Carlos Pauner

Yes, there was summits too, but in respect for Pepe we will wait to report them.

This is a very high risk sport where people die...

EverestNews.com had the pleasure of covering Pepe on many of his Summits. Here is a picture of Pepe Garces descending to base camp on GII in 1999.
