Seamus Lawless, 39, fell last week as he descended the mountain after a successful summit

An Irish climber who fell on Mount Everest during his death sent a heartbreaking final text to his pregnant wife from the top and told her & # 39; he had done it & # 39 ;.

A few hours after the text was sent, Seamus Lawless, 39, fell on the 27,000-meter-high & # 39; balcony & # 39; area of ​​& # 39; the world's highest mountain early on Thursday.

Guides eventually called off their search for the mountain climber, an assistant professor at the School of Computer Science at Trinity College in Dublin.

His death is because eleven climbers died in just nine days after treacherous weather cut through the climbing window, leaving mountain climbers to wait in long lines, risking exhaustion and running out of oxygen.

Thousands met on Sunday at the Holy Redeemer Church in Bray, Co Wicklow to pay tribute to Mr. Lawless.

Parish priest Fr Michael O & Kelly revealed during the service that the climber sent a final text to his upcoming wife Pamela from the summit of Everest and said: "He had done it, reached the summit and came home" ;

According to the sun, The father sent a final text to his future wife Pamela from the summit of Everest and said & he had done it, reached the summit and came home & # 39 ;.

The crowd was also told that Mr. Lawless had a & # 39; imprint on everyone & # 39; and that it was appropriate that his final resting place would be at the top of the world & # 39 ;.

Mr. Lawless, from Bray in County Wicklow, was part of the eight-person Irish climbing team that tried to climb the daunting 29,000-foot mountain.

Sherpa & # 39; s with the expedition told The Himalayan Times that the rest of the climbers had descended to Camp IV from the mountain, but that Mr. Lawless's fate was unknown.

Yesterday, a Canadian filmmaker posted a terrifying photo of Everest climbers walking over a corpse while standing in line at the top.

The eerie image shows a long line of adventurers stepping over a rope attached to a frozen corpse hanging almost 9,000 meters above sea level above the mountain.

Elia Saikaly, from Ottawa, Canada, placed his image to warn climbers of the danger of taking the highest mountain in the world.

He subtitled his grim photo: & # 39; Here we were all, chasing a dream and under our feet there was a lifeless soul. Is this what Everest has become? & # 39;

Mr. Saikaly, who filmed four Arab women on the mountain on Thursday, said: & I can't believe what I saw there. Death. Bloodbath. Chaos. Arrangements. Dead bodies on the route and in tents in camp 4.

Like the Everest deaths, nine climbers have died on other 26,000 ft Himalayan peaks, while one is missing.

At least four deaths on & # 39; the world's highest mountain were caused by overcrowding with teams that sometimes wait for hours in & # 39; death zone & # 39; where the cold is bitter, the air dangerously thin and the terrain treacherous.

John Kulish is the second American to die in the last ten days after reaching the peak.

He was part of a group of climbers who celebrated his 62nd birthday on the mountain.

Most deaths have been attributed to exhaustion and fatigue, exacerbated by the fact that a busy route to and from the top has led to delays.

Kulish was a patent attorney from Boulder, Colorado.

It remains unclear how experienced he was.

Robin Haynes Fisher, 44, died last week on Mount Everest, had previously told about his concerns about overpopulation on the mountain and had even changed his mind before he left.

Fisher died in the & # 39; death zone & # 39; – known for its low oxygen level – during its descent after reaching the top of & # 39; the world's highest mountain.

In one of his latest posts on social media, he told how he had changed his plans to make the & # 39; fatal & # 39; avoid crowds.

He said: & # 39; With a single route to the top, delays due to overcrowding can be fatal, so I am hopeful that my decision to go before the 25th will mean fewer people. Unless everyone plays the same waiting game. & # 39;

Local guides have accused the clogged routes of the recent death toll because waiting in the queues sucks up the limited oxygen supply of mountaineers and exposes them to the harder winds for longer.

Fisher was described as an & # 39; aspirational adventurer & # 39; who & # 39; lived life to the fullest & # 39; in a statement from his family.

They said: & # 39; He has achieved so much in his short life, climbing the Mont Blanc, Aconcagua and Everest.

& # 39; He was a & # 39; tough guy & # 39 ;, triathlete and marathon runner. A proponent of vegetarianism, published author and a cultured theater-goer, lover of Shakespeare.

& # 39; We are deeply saddened by his loss because he had so many more adventures and dreams to fulfill.

& # 39; Anyone who has ever met him in any capacity will always remember the positive impact he had on his life.

& # 39; Robin is a very beloved and loving son, brother, partner, uncle and friend. & # 39;

In a video recording on the expedition of Mr Fisher's partner, Kristyn Carriere, he is told that it is & # 39; a journey to remember & # 39; must be while he looks up at the climb from the base camp.
