Some sad news from Everest

Today we learned that 30 year old Namgyal Tshering Sherpa lost his life on Saturday, April 21 after falling forty meters into a crevasse from a ladder crossing just below Camp 1 on the Everest South route.  Unfortunately, he was not clipped into the safety line that may have helped to arrest his fall.

In 2010, Tshering was Lucille's personal Sherpa who summitted Mt. Everest with her, Domhnall, and Domhnall's personal sherpa Pemba.  This is very sad news for them to hear today.

Our thoughts are now with Tshering's young family now left without his support.
