2. That's sure confusing....
It reads like the "they" refers to the missing climbers - but why were they ascending? I would expect the climbers either to be staying put or descending.

3. I think the note was left at the start of their climb
just as a precautionary thing, not after they got into trouble. Sort of like filing a flight plan.

7. I saw a snip last night that purported
... a 911 call which indicated they had moved from the last place they sent a 911/cell from.

8. Hrmm...
not sure what to think about that.

If they're moving, it means they're alive, which is great. But will it make it harder to find them?

11. The note indicates that they had most of the basic gear
Edited on Fri Dec-15-06 07:48 PM by depakid


but the weather conditions this past week have been abysmal. I'm not expecting a good result.

Also, I should add that the conditions are VERY dangerous for rescuers, too, with whiteouts, extremely high winds and major avalanche danger. An emergency locater would have been a big help....
