Shishapangma avalanche, Billi safe

Robot: You may have heard or seen news of an avalanche on Shishapangma on 24 September, which very sadly took several young lives.

Billi just reported briefly from Zhangmu as she returns to Kathmandu, possibly today (30th). You’ll have a much fuller report of the happenings

The avalanche did not affect her or her group but the conditions on the mountain did not improve since the fatal accident, and she called it a day.
