The Khumbu Climbing Center was started 10 years ago by Conrad Anker and Jennifer Lowe-Anker in memory of the late Alex Lowe. Since its commencement the number of attendees each year has steadily increased as well as the safety of high altitude workers in the Khumbu region of Nepal. The Alex Lowe Charitable Foundation is in the process of fundraising to complete a building to permanently house the program in years to come.
