Rescue workers found only parts of their equipment.

All three were incredibly accomplished mountaineers. It is with a heavy heart I have to say this, but they were hit by a massive avalanche off Mt. Howse sometime on Tuesday and there was visible evidence they perished.

On 18th April, the Canadian authorities conducted a search operation around the area by helicopter and spotted avalanche debris along with the climbing gears of the climbers. It must be assumed that the three climbers are dead.

He was climbing in Canada with Mr Auer, 35, and Mr Lama, 28, both of whom were also known for a number of notable ascents around the globe.

A sponsor of all three men, the apparel company The North Face, said on Thursday that they were presumed dead.

"All three of them were really knowledgeable about avalanche conditions and dangers", John said.

John Roskelley had climbed the 10,810-foot Howse Peak, via a different route, in the 1970s and is said to know the area well. As he revealed to Washinton paper The Spokesman-Review, It's only one of those courses where you must have the correct conditions or it transforms into a bad dream.

Roskelley, 36, from Spokane, Washington state, scaled Mount Everest at age 20.

Lama was the son of an Austrian nurse and Nepali mountain guide and excelled at climbing before his teens, says The North Face website.

Lama, who has 113,000 Instagram followers, a year ago reached the summit of Lunag Ri, Nepal's tallest unclimbed peak. Here, a climbing route is done alone, waiving technical aids and security. The 2007 achievement was "arguably the hardest ever big-wall free-solo" climb ever completed before Alex Honnold's recent free-solo climb of El Capitan in 2017, Rock and Ice magazine reported.

Mountaineering legend Reinhold Messner showed himself deeply affected by the probable death of Tyrolean mountaineers David Lama and Hansjörg Auer and their United States teammate Jess Roskelley.

He said the three men are considered among the top one per cent of alpinists in the world.

Earlier, Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz said Lama and Auer had "shaped the worldwide climbing and alpinist scene in recent years with many achievements". Auer, with whom he was in even closer contact, had been "world class in every discipline".
