Photo Gallery – Shishapangma 1999

| July 23, 2008 | 0 Comments

After discussing avalanche avoidance for the last few days, it seemed like a good time put up some photos from one of my worst avalanche experiences – Shishapangma 1999, where Alex Lowe and David Bridges died in a massive slide while scouting a route near the base of the line we were hoping to ski.

The event was covered by MountainZone.com and is still available on their website at:
