The mountaineer from Lower Saxony set off on a high-alpine tour on September 17th when it snowed on the Hochkalter in Ramsau near Berchtesgaden. He then slipped below the 2,607-meter-high summit, as reported by the Bavarian Red Cross. He made several calls to 911, saying he could barely hold himself up in the snowstorm and the freezing cold. Then the contact broke off. Rescue workers had tried to find the young man in a large-scale search operation.
