Mountain guide Olivier Sourzac, 47, and his client Charlotte Demetz, 44, had successfully climbed the classic north face route of The Shroud last week, and made the summit, before being caught in a terrible week-long storm.
Luca Signorelli has been keeping the UKC Forums updated with information on the situation and reported at 11.23 this morning, that the pair had tragically not survived.
