    Hilaree Nelson missing on Manaslu

    Hope this turns out ok, she's a badass. https://mteveresttoday.com/north-fac...ng-in-manaslu/

    It sounds like this was something different than an avalanche that also hit groups on Manaslu. I know someone from the Roaring Fork valley that was also up there skiing, I hope she's safe. (Edit- found out she's ok) https://thehimalayantimes.com/nepal/...-from-camp-iii

    Oh no. I hope she is found still alive. Been following their climb on social media. This sucks.

    formerly an ambassador for a few others, but the ski industry is... interesting.

    Yeah, saw this too. Heard about the avalanches, serac fall etc and thought of her and the Polish guy.

    Goldenboy,

    How'd you find out she is ok? From close friends? Haven't seen anything in the news saying as such. #vibes

    Xover I think he is saying his friend is ok, also a 'she' that is OK. Not Hilaree.

    I think?

    Correct. I saw that Sarah from the RFV is OK. No idea on Hilaree. Sorry for any confusion.

    Fuck. RIP to a great human.
    Reading into things a bit here, seems like she musta gone in with the rope.
    Morrison would still be up there if necessary if the rope didn't go in.
    And he gets to 4 to find all hands on deck for the avalanche rescue; no ropes or help available.
    Fuck. And the guy lost his first wife and son to a plane crash not so long ago.
    Know he's a tough sob, but send vibes.

    Little back story on this great human: Few years ago there was an NF ski expedition to Mt. Dharamsura (White Sail Peak) in the Garwhal Himalaya. Hilaree's venture. My son was along and got altitude sickness. Hilaree called for an evac on the sat phone (which was illegal to have because of the mountain's proximity to Pakistan; they might be spies and she'd smuggled it in anyways on account). Caused her to be banned from India, which she was aware could happen, for several years.
    Did that call save his life? Yes.
    Point is that a summit or descent from it was not worth someone's life to her, and in that case several summits.
    Kind of person you want in your foxhole.

    Time spent skiing cannot be deducted from one's life.

    It will all come out in due time but it was not a crevasse fall. While she is missing and a rescue mission should be departing via helicopter if conditions permit at first light, never trust the details the first day of reports of incidents from the Himalaya. Lots of stuff gets lost in translation and distance. All I can say is pray for her, her family, friends and Jim right now.

    Not the point.

    Yeah, hoping for a miracle here. Such an icon of a human and athlete.

    Yesterday, randomly, I just reread that Ski Journal article that Hilaree wrote about White Sail yesterday with Johnny. Wild trip for everyone but shows true character to accept the jail time and life consequences for the Sat calls.

    Different incident I think. That's the big avalanche that happened the same day.
