First Babu spelled his name: Babu Chiri Sherpa

Babu Chiri Sherpa tragic death on Everest this year was shocking to some. A couple of comments from Everest veteran Expedition Leaders about his death to EverestNews.com:

"Nice man, they always get the good ones, and Babu certainly was one of those." 

"Tragic - but I guess this is the risk of being in this game." 

Photo in the Rum Doodle of Babu Chiri Sherpa signing the wall upon his return from 21 hours on the summit of Everest.

Contributions to the Ararat 2001 Peace Climb will go in part to help build a school for Babu's daughters. His dream was for his daughters not to have to work in the mountain.
