I was just alerted to a story about the dangerous conditions that are present on the south side of Everest this year. There is an article at Outside Online called “Rolling Stones” that talks about the rock fall danger on Lhotse face. But more importantly is the injury that is reported in the article. The Sherpa who accompanied me to the summit of Everest two years ago, who shared the summit with me, took photos of me on the summit, was badly injured in a rock fall that hit his face. I will let you read the article if you want to know more.
I just wanted to take this opportunity to get word out, so you can wish him well and keep him in your prayers. Below are some pictures I took of him, the first one in Camp 4 and the last two on the summit. Get well soon Lhakpa Nuru! We are all wishing you well!
