Update: There is bad news in this search – one body has been found on remote mountain slope in China: CNN Reports

It has now been identified as Charlie Fowler  Boskoff is still missing but it appears they presume she did not make it either.

Mountain Madness was the company founded by Scott Fisher who died on Mt Everest in the ill fated expedition chronicled in the book “Into Thin Air”.

    Glenn yes a lot of news at their search blog which is effectively testing the idea that an online environment can really help with searching: http://fowlerboskoff.blogspot.com/

    I’m pretty sure it’s been done before but this is the first I’ve seen where the blog appears to be the key point of data collection.

    Joe,

    Seems we both cover a few of the same stories…haha. Haven’t been here in awhile but noticed you were covering the lost climbers in China. I do have some more stories and links on this issue over on my blog as well.

    I am hearing that an avalanche took out the climbers…at least they were found. Two still missing on Mt. Hood…
