Chloé Graftiaux at Cliffhanger.

The Belgian climber and mountaineer Chloé Graftiaux has been tragically killed when a hold broke while descending easy ground on l'aiguille Noire de Peutrey on the south side of Mont Blanc

23 year old Chloé was on her last route before departing on an expedition to India.

She was an outstanding all round climber and mountaineer who had sport climbed F8b, bouldered Font 7C, mixed climbed M11 and ice climbed WI 6.

In 2010 she had won both ice climbing and bouldering world cups.

Originally from Belgium, she moved to Grenoble in France 4 years ago and hoped to become a mountain guide at ENSA in Chamonix.

She was an inspirational climber and much loved by those who knew her.

In July this year she was in the UK and won the IFSC bouldering world cup round held during the Cliffhanger event in Sheffield - report here.
