It is with great remorse we enter the 1999/2000 ice climbing season. The loss of Alex Lowe and David Bridges to an avalanche in Shishapangma is a tragedy that should remind us all that even when you are the best Mother Nature is still the one in control.
A fund has been established for Alex Lowe's three children.
Those interested in making a donation can send to:
