Mountain-climbers have made a grisly discovery in the Mont Blanc range of the Alps - the body of a young climber preserved in ice for 32 years.

The body of Patrice Hyvert, who had been training to be a guide, was found last Thursday by two mountain-climbers, local newspaper Dauphine Libere and other media reported.

1982, eh? So he missed all of the thrills and excitement and McDonald's sponsored advertisements of the 1984 Olympics. Terrible.

He must've been in a very unusual spot if those who typically die up there are found the next year when the thaw comes yet he wasn't found for 32 years.

I agree with his father, they should have left him there.
