Lincoln Hall's friend reported dead near Everest

Prominent Australian mountain climber Sue Fear, the first Australian woman to climb Mt Everest (from the north side in 2003), has been reported as having perished on a mountain near Mt Everest, soon after having summited the world's eighth-highest mountain.

Sue Fear is a friend of Lincoln Hall who we have been writing about this week, and last year co-authored a book ('Fear No Boundary - The Road to Everest and Beyond') with the 'Lazarus' mountaineer. Let's hope that the reports of her death are as greatly exaggerated as those of Lincoln's.

Meanwhile, Lincoln is reported to be approaching Katmandu, and his friend Simon Balderstone is on his way to meet him in the Nepali capital and escort him home.

Damn, fella.
I wonder if they will be telling Lincoln anything about Sue or if they will wait. I sure have my fingers, toes, and eyeballs crossed that there is a reporting error on her and that she's just around the mt's bend somewhere.
