Hilaree Nelson, a famous US mountaineer has been reported missing on Manaslu mountain, the world’s eighth tallest peak after reportedly falling into a deep crevasse during a ski descent.


The North Face-sponsored athlete and mother of two earlier on Monday (Sept. 26) reached the summit of Mount Manaslu in Nepal with her partner Jim Morrison.

According to witness accounts, Nelson 49, slipped and appeared to fall into a 2,000ft (600m) gap in the ice, known as a crevasse, only 15 minutes after reaching the summit of the 26,781ft peak.

A local guide that had been working with the couple told Outside magazine that other climbers who were with them reported that “her ski blade skidded off and [she] fell off the other side of the peak”.


According to reports, her partner, Jim Morrison was able to safely return to camp after the incident.

Ms Nelson’s sponsor, The North Face, said they are “in touch with Hilaree’s family” and describe her on their website as “the most prolific ski mountaineer of her generation.”
