Guiding companies are abandoning the mountain after a third fatality in one week

Hilaree Nelson was among the most accomplished ski mountaineers and alpinists on the planet. On Wednesday, rescuers recovered Nelson's body on the southern slope of 26,781-foot Manaslu.

After going missing on Monday while descending from the summit, Nelson was found by a search and rescue team

Two days after Nelson went missing on Manaslu, details about the ski mountaineer’s accident are emerging

The 49-year-old mountaineer reportedly fell into a crevasse just below the summit while descending the peak on skis. Elsewhere on the mountain, an avalanche killed one climber and injured a dozen more.

Harila has climbed 12 of the world’s 14 peaks above 8,000 meters. Now she’s asking for public assistance in obtaining a permit to enter China and ascend the final two.

Purja, 39, returned to the mountain on Tuesday, one day after a paragliding mishap. “I can laugh about it," he wrote on social media.

Mountaineers now agree on the location of the 26,781-foot peak’s highest point. More than 400 are expected to try and reach the summit this fall.
