Lourens Dahms (17) had an argument with his girlfriend on Sunday afternoon and walked up the mountain to clear his head. At 9pm he phoned to his girlfriend from Paarl Rock, apparently she heard the cell phone fall.
The search party found the smashed cell phone and one shoe downslope from the Eurovision area. His body was in the Vietnam / Absence of compassion chimney.

On behalf of the climbing community, condolences to his family.

I heard about this today while in Paarl. Did he commit suicide or was it an accident.

may he rest in peace.

My understanding from a local source is that it was an accident. Condolences to all that have lost a loved one on the mountains.
