Lake Oswego Climber Dies in Argentina
David Reinhart of Lake Oswego and Eric Nourse from Colorado died trying to summit the tallest mountain in the Andes, and in the America's.
Eric's twin brother Greg Nourse who lives in Portland survived the climb. Mount Aconcagua is over 22,000 feet and reports say Reinhart got altitude sickness around 20,000 feet and fell behind. They used a satellite phone to call their families back the states while Greg set out to try and find help.
Sadly, two of the three climbers never made it off the mountain.
