Two more climbers have died on Mont Blanc following the deaths of nine people last week in a massive avalanche. Rescue officials said the bodies of a Polish woman and Spanish man were found 14,436 feet up on the Dome du Gouter peak on the Italian-French border July 14 after spending more than 24 hours in a snow hole.
