A world-renowned rock climber plunged more than 600 feet to his death while attempting to rappel down from a steep cliff in Mexico this week, reports said.
The fall occurred on Wednesday on an nearly sheer face known as Sendero Luminoso on the El Potrero Chico peak near the northern city of Monterrey, civil defense officials said.
Mr Gobright, 31, and fellow American Aidan Jacobson, 26, were climbing a route known as the Shining Path in the northern state of Nuevo Leon on Wednesday when they fell, the state's emergency response agency said in a statement.
The pair were abseiling down the face together on the same rope, an advanced technique known as simul-rappelling, when the accident happened, Jacobson was quoted as saying.
"I asked if we were good, and he said, 'Yes, we can untangle the rope on the way down, '" Mr Jacobson told Outside.

"It was basically a blur", he told Outside.
Gobright was an accomplished "free solo climber", a type of climbing where climbers climb without the aid of ropes, harnesses or other protective equipment. "I went through some vegetation, and then all I remember is seeing his blue Gramicci shirt bounce over the edge".
