Internationally acknowledged Finnish mountain climber Samuli Mansikka, 36, and the nepalese Pemba Sherpa died the 24th of March 2015 when descending Annapurna. Between his mountain climbing expeditions Samuli trained at CrossFit Herttoniemi where Samuli was well-known, from many years by some. The death of Samuli was a shock and a great loss and Samuli is being sorely missed. Samuli dying doing what was important and dear for him does not ease the grief but that Samuli managed to reach the top of Annapurna, 8091m, which is considered as one of the most dangerous and difficult mountains to climb, was a great achievement.
