    Makalu 2011: Safe, Healthy and Heading Home

    Makalu_trekking_2009 Sitting on a warm piece of granite in front of a crystal-clear stream, Steve House called this morning on his way out from Makalu towards Kathmandu. The news you'll hear is both positive and somber. Everyone Steve traveled and climbed with are all safe and healthy. Unfortunately, he and Marko were asked to assist another party in which a Swiss climber died on the mountain.
