The most famous and experienced Greek climber is no longer with us. Kostas Tzivelekas had led 13 missions in the Himalayas and had participated in 37 missions in total.
His most important achievement, of course, was leading the Hellas Everest 2004, the first mission of Greeks at the top of the Everest.
Tzivelekas was from Mavrolithari, Fokida.
The news of his death has brought sorrow to Greece and to the people of sports.
