Tragedy Strikes the Climbing Community

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.

Memorial Fund Established
