"The last time climber Yo****eru Takahashi found what he believes is the lair of the elusive yeti, high in the Himalayas, his camera developed a fault due to the altitude and extreme cold. But he is confident that this time around he will finally prove the "abominable snowman" exists."

There is obviously a cultural bias in the profanity detection.

I hope he doesn't find it. Simply for the protection of the yeti.

"the lair"...."the yeti"...

So, there's only one? Not a member of a reproducing population of yeti? It is immortal? How long have the yeti stories been around?

Why do you think they keep going back? Obviously it's not for the pictures?
