Bulgarian Climber Dies On K2 Expedition

A Bulgarian Mountaineer fell to his death during an expedition on k2, the second person to die on the World's Second Highest Mountain in weeks.

According to AFP Eseven Summit treks -- a trekking company leading the expedition -- said Atanas Skatov, 42, fell as he was changing ropes during his descent to base camp.

The Alpine Club of Pakistan also confirmed the incident, saying his body was later recovered and flown by a Pakistani Military Helicopter to the nearby City of Skardu.

Skatov is the second Climber to die on K2's slopes this season after a Spanish Mountaineer fell to his death last month.
