We Send Our Thoughts And Prayers

Climbing and mountaineering are inherently dangerous of course, but for those of us that hold climbing dear to our hear, it is painful to hear of tragedies of this magnitude. We could be looking at the biggest, certainly one of the biggest accidents in the history of climbing Everest.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to the climbers and sherpas, those potentially still entrapped, the rescuers heading up to help, and the families that are required to stand by with questions and scant information as the rescue develops.
