A 49-year-old American mountain climber named Hilaree Nelson is thought to have gone missing while on an expedition to Nepal. One of her sponsors said that she went missing below the summit of Mount Manaslu, which is the eighth highest mountain in the world. During her long and successful career, which lasted more than 20 years, Nelson was known for being the first person to do ski mountaineering.
One of Hilaree Nelson’s sponsors, The North Face Company, said on Monday that they were in touch with her family and helping with the search and rescue. Also, the company said that Nelson’s partner is a skilled mountain climber who skis often. When she went missing, she and Jim Morrison were in the mountains of Nepal.
The head of Shangri-La Nepal Trek, Jiban Ghimire, said that his staff at Base Camp got a phone call on Monday. The call said that Nelson’s ski edge came off, and she fell off the mountain peak on the other side.
Nelson wrote and posted pictures about her trip on Instagram not too long ago. She talked about the bad weather climbers had in recent days and how unstable she felt when she was climbing Manaslu.
Morrison wrote recently on Instagram that the last few weeks have tested my strength in new ways.” On her website, she also said, “The last few weeks have pushed me to my limits.
Hilaree Nelson is from Colorado and was one of the first people to climb mountains. She is also looked up to by climbers who are younger than her. In October 2018, James Morrison was with her. He is from Tahoe, California.
She climbed Everest and Lhotse, the two mountains next to the world’s highest peak, in just one day. On her 42nd trip around the world, she was able to do this. She was the first woman known to have reached the top of Everest in 2012. In 2018, she was named captain of the Athlete Team for The North Face.
Sharma’s adventures in the world’s mountains often take her to places that mountaineers have never been before. CNN asked the Nepal Tourism Board for a comment, but they didn’t answer right away.
