Our thoughts are with Nepal

Recent Nepal Earthquake Devastation:

We have been in touch with our friends in Nepal and they have suffered some losses and are working toward healing and repairs at this time. Please take a moment with us and remember a country and climbing community is strong and beautiful, and now in great need of support to rebuild. Our thoughts are with Nepal.

The best organization that we know that is for the heart of Nepal and their climbing communities is
the Alex Lowe Charitable Foundation. They remain small and began several supportive programs for this region, including the Khumbu Climbing Center; it is a key competent in teaching the Sherpa people climbing skills to create a safer environment/help get folks jobs on Everest. They are based in Phortse and have strong connections with this village, which has been devastated by the earthquake.
