Rescue 11/7
« on: November 07, 2001, 07:20:42 AM »

Anyone know anything about the rescue that occured yesterday?  I know that Brad White went out with some other people to look for some folks who were overdue, but that's all I know...

apparently a couple from NY were trying to summit Mt. Washington from the Great Gulf side. they left Sunday & got caught in the Sunday nite storm. instead of trying to retreat they continued, hoping to make the observatory, & got caught Monday in the snowstorm that dumped 19 inches on the mountain. there are 3-5 foot drifts up there already. the local MRS found them on Tuesday. fortunately they had a tent but everything they had was wet. they were in distress when team leader Mark Chauvin found them. the girl was inexperienced, but the man was moderately experienced. another case of underestimating the mountain!
