Famed US climber Gobright falls to death

Mexico: A world-renowned rock climber, US national Brad Gobright, fell to his death while climbing a sheer rock face in northern Mexico, authorities said.

Gobright, 31, and fellow American Aidan Jacobson, 26, were climbing a route known as the Shining Path in the northern state of Nuevo Leon on Wednesday when they fell, the state’s emergency response agency said in a statement on Thursday.

Witnesses said the men had finished climbing the 900-metre summit and were rappelling back down when the accident occurred.

Jacobson landed on a rock outcrop, but Gobright bounced off and fell another 300 metres to his death, they said.”Jacobson suffered lesions on his right ankle and various parts of his body. He was treated at our base,” the statement said.
