The events that led to the downfall of Hilaree Nelson

The renowned American mountaineer, Hilaree Nelson, suffered a fall last Monday when she was skiing back to base camp after reaching the summit of Manaslu, 8,163 meters high, along with her husband Jim Morrison.

In the first theory of the accident, it was thought that Nelson had fallen through a crack, a theory that was later ruled out by the search team that had been active since Monday, and that they had to resume on Tuesday due to weather conditions.

It is important to point out that Nelson had already warned of the conditions of this expedition through her social networks where she expressed her desire to return to her home.
