Shishapangma: Update from the Team

Hello Everyone,
We received very sad news earlier today. One of the Sherpa team members was caught in an avalanche this morning and has died. The rest of the team are safe. All team members are spending the night at Camp 2 and will be descending in the morning. The accident occurred below Camp 3 as a Sherpa team was moving up. This is all the information we have at this time. We will provide updates as we get information from the team.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the Sherpas, climbers and their families.

The RMI Office Team
