They've named the deceased climber: Lloyd Charton. Apparently he was a professional mountain guide and founder of Lux Adventures. Though the media hasn't reported that yet. I learned it through FB posts.

Yeah, I've heard that he was quite accomplished.  I wonder what happened.  Perhaps they were roped since both of them fell?
