    Uday Marty

    A Silicon Valley hardware executive was one of the six people killed in a fall on Mount Rainier last week.

    Uday Marty, who served as a vice president for Intel and oversaw the company's microchip manufacturing operations in southeast Asia, was one of the people who died after a 3,300-foot fall, the company confirmed.

    The company called Marty, 40, an "accomplished engineer and manager." He won two company awards, in 2008 and 2010, and had worked at the company for 18 years.

    He had worked on netbooks, the smaller Internet-focused PCs, and was based in Singapore.

    Marty, three other climbers and two guides were last heard from at 6 p.m. Wednesday. The area where the climbing party fell can't be searched by foot because of perilous conditions; the Seattle-based company that organized the trip, Alpine Ascents International, says it will monitor the area via airplane.
