I'd like to hear how they re-tell what happened to a captive audience. I'm cautiously optimistic they will be accurate.
This letter to the editor was posted in the Conway Daily Sun last week regarding the Ascents Of Honor incident in Huntington Ravine. I don't know why this wasn't posted on the Conway Sun web site, but here it is:
The first Snow Ranger and HMC caretaker parked the snowmobile near the first aid cache at the base of Huntington. At 6:20pm, approximately 200 yards uphill from the cache, they encountered the injured climbers slowly working their way down the trail. They briefly questioned the group about what had happened and if they had any information about the rest of the team. Knowing there were more rescuers who would be arriving soon, they did not want first aid at this time. At the request of the lead guide, the hasty team continued up into Huntington where they could see headlamps slowly descending the gully. They climbed up the fan, careful to avoid the avalanche runout path from Odell, Pinnacle, or Central Gully, until they were able to make contact with the remaining climbers and determined that they were doing OK.
