PORTLAND, Ore. — A Colorado man has died while mountain climbing in Argentina.

41-year-old Eric Nourse was killed along with a climbing partner on Mount Aconcagua, which has a summit of nearly 23,000 feet.

The Portland Oregonian is reporting that Nourse died while he and his twin brother Greg Nourse were trying to get help for a third hiker, David Reinhart, who fell behind with altitude sickness.

Reinhart also died on the climb, making Greg Nourse the only survivor from the three-member expedition.
