The tragedy on the slope of the Aiguille du Peigne. Another French mountaineer also died. The alarm raised by other climbers. The gendarmerie: That way was not forbidden
Adle Milloz was a ski mountaineering champion and was about to become a mountain guide. On Friday afternoon, her lifeless body, along with that of another thirty-year-old French mountaineer, was found on Mont Blanc, along the French side of the Aiguille du Peigne (3,192 meters). It was other climbers who noticed the accident and called for help, now useless. The French gendarmerie, who intervened with a helicopter from Chamonix, ruled out that there could have been a discharge of stones at the origin, and stated that the climb was not forbidden. The French authorities have opened an investigation.
Milloz, 26, originally from Tignes, in the Savoie department, was one of the strongest French ski mountaineering athletes. Winner of several national titles, in 2017 she had won gold at the world championships in sprint and individual disciplines. In 2018 she also obtained the fifth place at the Pierra Menta, one of the most prestigious ski mountaineering competitions. She was attending the Chamonix National Ski and Mountaineering School to become a high mountain guide. On August 15, she had to start the final internship that would lead her to graduate.
