Video: Rescue Efforts On Manaslu
The tragic avalanche accident that occurred on Manaslu last week has cast a large shadow over this fall's Himalayan climbing season. As operations on that mountain wrap up for the year, I'm sure we'll be hearing more about that awful experience. But today we have a video that was put together by Himalayan Ascent that shows some of the rescue efforts that were made in the wake of the accident. The footage gives us all an idea of what it was like on the mountain as search and rescue teams combed Manaslu looking for survivors and assisting the injured.
