Very sad news indeed. I climbed with Yvonne in Bolivia in 2009 on my first Alpine Club expedition organized by Dave Wynne-Jones. She was a determined climber, a loyal friend and kind person. I regret we had lost touch over the last few years.

So saddened and shocked by the news. I have climbed with Yvonne a number of times over the years. She will be sorely missed
