Rob Milne
It has just been reported that Rob Milne died nearing the summit of
Everest.

www.everestnews.com

Rob, 49, was an occasional contributor to Mountainviews (rmilne), for example on Mweelrea or Mount Leinster and to various other forums including uk.rec.walking He combined an interest in several of the world's highest mountains many of which he had climbed with a respect for the value of smaller peaks and less well known tops such as the Corbetts. He remarked in 2003 that ".. recently I would guess the Everest gets more ascents per year than Aden does. " (Ben Aden is an 887m peak in Scotland). Whilst most of the readers of MountainViews did not know Rob personally (certainly I had only corresponded with him) I am sure we are all saddened by his passing.
