Prayer flags on the summit of Pen-y-Fan (south Wales) with Maria Leijerstam.

At 886 metres, 10x smaller than Mount Everest, Pen-y-Fan seemed an appropriate place to pay our respects to the Sherpa who lost their lives in an avalanche on the mountain last week.

A charity has been set up to raise funds to support the families left behind. Please consider making a donation www.support4sherpas.org
