Video: Avalanche Rescue Efforts on Manaslu

An inside look at the chaos caused by an avalanche

The tragic avalanche accident that occurred on Manaslu two weeks ago has cast a large shadow over this fall's Himalayan climbing season. As operations on that mountain wrap up for the year, I'm sure we'll be hearing more about that awful experience. But today we have a video that was put together by Himalayan Ascent that shows some of the rescue efforts that were made in the wake of the accident. The footage gives us all an idea of what it was like on the mountain in the immediate chaotic aftermath of the avalanche, as search and rescue teams combed Manaslu looking for survivors and assisting the injured.
