Un afamado escalador estadounidense, Brad Gobright, falleci√≥ el mi√©rcoles al caer desde una altura de unos 300 metros de una ruta conocida como “Sendero Luminoso” en el noreste de M√©xico, informaron autoridades.

“Dos escaladores de origen estadounidense cayeron de la ruta Sendero Luminoso, en Potrero Chico, Hidalgo, Nuevo Le√≥n. Uno de ellos perdi√≥ la vida al caer de una altura de unos 300 metros”, report√≥ este jueves la oficina de Protecci√≥n Civil de Nuevo Le√≥n.

Los rescatistas recibieron la tarde del mi√©rcoles una llamada para alertarlos sobre la ca√≠da de Gobright, de 31 a√Īos, y otro estadounidense, Aidan Jacobson, de 26, cuando descend√≠an de la ruta Sendero Luminoso, que tiene una altura de 900 metros y est√° situada en el paraje Potrero Chico, del municipio de Hidalgo.

These are some shots taken on the desert road trip I took last week. The trip was ten days long and we sampled different types of climbing. Long, short, winggate, solidified mud, exposed calcite, scary basalt. We climbed trad, sport and even bouldered. Some times it was very hot and other times it was very cold. We slept in the dirt, the back of vans and fancy hotel rooms. At times things got very chaotic but at other times it was calm and silent as I stared off into the vast openness. The trip wasn‚Äôt really about projecting and sending hard. It was more about getting variety in a relatively short amount of time. I hadn‚Äôt taken a trip like this in a really long time and it was actually a very refreshing experience. I‚Äôm teaming up with @gramicci_climb to make a short film about the trip.

Otros testigos dijeron que ambos descendían a rapel cuando cayeron por un problema técnico con sus cuerdas hasta una repisa de la enorme formación rocosa, pero Gobright además rebotó y cayó 300 metros más abajo.

“Jacobson present√≥ lesiones en tobillo derecho y varias partes del cuerpo. Fue atendido en base”, concluy√≥ el comunicado.

Gobright era un reconocido escalador en solo integral y especialista en grandes paredes. Generalmente compartía en su cuenta de Instagram registros de sus actividades junto a sus 55 mil seguidores.

I‚Äôm really excited for The Valley season to arrive. Ive been climbing a lot in the High Sierra this summer and that‚Äôs been fun but I‚Äôve been itching to get back on El Cap where the real business (for me) is at. My big goal for Fall 19 was to climb El Ni√Īo in a day but I some how managed to tick that one off last Spring along with two other el Cap free routes. That‚Äôs left me with some stressful choices that I was thinking I wouldn‚Äôt have to make until next year. It could very well be that I had reached my El Cap limit last Spring but I guess there‚Äôs only one way to find out. Great shot by @steeppathproductions of when @alexhonnold and I climbed El Ni√Īo back in June. I whipped three times on this pitch before handing the lead to Alex. He floated up it and I followed in his anti gravitational wake. It‚Äôs weird how science works like that. @gramicci_climb @evolv_worldwide @frictionlabs
