She didn't make very good choices, but a death sentence is far too harsh for that. Really sorry to read about this.

Id wager weve all crossed our own line sometime out in the hills.



Sounds as if she was an evangelist for getting out of doors in her own way.

RIP.

I read somewhere that she only did the bikini selfie thing on summits and hiked in proper gear though many are jumping on the Darwin bandwagon. With a fall of 30 meters, it doesn't matter what clothing choice one makes.  RIP

Reports says she froze to death.

No I'm not making a joke of her

Sounds like maybe she didn't get her proper climbing clothes back on before the accident

I'll never understand putting your life at risk just for the attention.

Ive seen this story elsewhere.

No, she didnt hike in a two piece suit. Other photos have her looking not unusual. Even a rain cover on her pack. She just had a problem while hiking alone.

No surprise that a younger person selfied from top of hill as a habit.

Other source made it sound like rescue took at least two nights to arrive. Froze? I assume wed all read this as common hypothermia.
