You always hear about Everest deaths, but this man is much more treacherous.

A South Korean climber has died after a fall on the famous Matterhorn peak in the Apls, prompting guides to call on officials to close the mountain.

The climber, who was not identified, had decided to split up from a compatriot who was also ascending the mountain and return toward the base. 

Officials say during his descent Tuesday, at a height of about 12,140ft, the climber fell 650ft to his death. The other climber was retrieved by helicopter.


Valais regional police said Wednesday that an investigation into the death was underway. 

It is not clear what caused the rock to fall but geologists believe the hot weather could be a factor.

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
