Bad year on the ice - be careful!

Dear companions all,
Just a quick and very sad notice to mention the deaths of 2 Busan ice climbers on Towangsong Pokpo last weekend. As the rescue team in Seoraksan explained it, one climber's pro failed and he fell stranding his partner alone on the wall, whom tragically appears to have then succumbed to hyperthermia. Whatever the details, it's a horrible thing and must be a huge blow to the family and friends of the two climbers. My (and everyone else's here too) sincere and deep sympathies and condolences to those involved. Let's all be extra careful and climb as safely as we can.
