Temple Crag (Sierras) Hekicopter Rescue
TEMPLE CRAG / SIERRA NEVADA, CA, June 17, 2019 – On June 15 at around 5:45pm, a male and female party of two were "simul-climbing" (a climbing technique where all climbers climb at the same time while tied into the same rope) the technical rock route “Sun Ribbon Arete” on Temple Crag in the Palisades region of the Sierra Nevada. At about 12,600’ (about 200' from the summit) a rock broke causing the second climber to fall about 20-30’ before being caught by their rope. The team sent a distress signal via their Personal Locator Beacon, and ultimately Inyo County Sheriff’s Office was notified.
An Inyo County Sheriff’s Office Search and Rescue (SAR) Coordinator was later contacted by the male climber via telephone who advised that they were prepared to spend the night, still tied into their ropes. A call for assistance was made to volunteer members of Inyo County SAR and CHP - Inland Division Air Operations, for a technical rescue the following morning.
On June 16, a member of Inyo SAR was flown to the location and successfully lowered down to the small ledge, where the climber was, from the helicopter. Inyo SAR performed a quick medical assessment and prepared the patient to be extracted. CHP H-82 hoisted the patient and transported her to the Bishop Airport where they were met by Symons Ambulance. Inyo SAR and the male climber were able to climb and hike out without incident.

Another day celebrating living in Colorado with a 1,800 foot, steep (50 degree) climb on Dragon's Tail Couloir on the South face of Flattop Mountain, 12,324 Feet, in Rocky Mountain National Park.

Moe Kowbell picked me up at 3:30 am with our packs and tools for a "winter" climb in the trunk. Weather was perfect with temps in the 40s, light wind and blue skies.

Dragons Tail is very steep at times and you would not want to fall. It's mostly snow with a few sections of steep rock near the top to keep it interesting. It's often skied by experts.

The approach is from the Bear Lake parking lot, about 2 miles and 6.5 miles round trip with a total elevation gain of 2600 feet. The snow was good in the early morning but turned to mashed potatoes later but we stayed focus and finished the round trip feeling tired and satisfied with our performance.

Getting reacquainted with the Cordillera Blanca. My only previous trip to Peru was in 2002. I was seventeen years old, didn't speak a word of Spanish, and travelled to South America by myself. I'm definitely grateful that my parents trusted me to travel so far away at that age. My only significant climb on that trip was a solo ascent of Alpamayo, except it wasn't really a true solo, as the route had fixed ropes on it, and I rappelled with two guys from Andorra. One of my memories from the trip was watching the 2002 Futbol World Cup at Casa de Zarella. I arrived back here in Huaraz in the last week of May, and promptly got reacquainted with the local bacteria (spent a few days shitting my brains out). I spent a week in the Ishinka Valley in the company of @robsmith_mountainguide and @gisellecesin. We didn't make it up Tocllaraju (it was their turn to battle the local bacteria), but had a great time, with the conversation always appropriately inappropriate. The last few days I've been in Huaraz with @aceeaux, and hopefully Rob and I will get up to some mountain climbing in the coming days. Photos: 1) Myself on the summit of Alpamayo in 2002. 2) Below Alpamayo after the descent, with the two Andorrans I rappelled with. 3) Groupie with Rob and Giselle while acclimatizing. 4) Rob and Giselle descending the lower slopes of Tocllaraju. 5) Alisa climbing at Los Olivos, just outside Huaraz. @patagonia_climb @petzl_official @scarpaspa @ Ancash Region

Tomorrow, June 12, the expedition by Denis Urubko and Maria Cardell will start. The goal is to climb a new route on Gasherbrum II. "And is the line already known? Or on place?" I asked. "The line has been in my head for 18 years," was the answer. Dreams must come true!

Summit of #mtwhitney! 20.8 miles and 6,775 feet of elevation gain. 15 hours of ice, snow and post holing to your hip brutal climb. The snow ice ledge on the backside was crazy for about 2 miles. Didn’t think we would be able to summit this early after the huge snow year the Sierra’s had. Crampons and ice axes after the first 2 miles. @kaznodak1 is a beast, so glad we got to do this together. Thank you @arrrrdubya for the great information, best info we had received planning for this trip. #hiking #backpacking #bigagnes #seirus_gear#patagonia #arcteryx @ Mount Whitney

Sequel to last Sunday’s foiled attempt to climb San Gorgonio via north chutes:EllenMarilyn, and I succeeded on round 2! We went up via Dry Lake (not so dry) and entered the chute farthest to the left. It was choppy, dirty and ugly, so we traversed the ridge between it and the next chute to the right. From there it’s was nearly perfect in every way. As always, the last 50’ or so pitched steeply enough to get my adrenaline up, but it wasn’t icy at all so that was nice.You will see by my pics that the weather was beautiful. I was in short sleeves until we topped out on the ridge where there was a stiff breeze. We removed crampons to walk the ridge to San Gorgonio Peak and had lunch in the company of a group of very hungry ground squirrels. Then we retraced our steps for the way back down. It was a long day...13 hours from start to finish. Thank you mountain sisters for one of the best days ever!
