The All-Powerful Atheismo: That's a huge biatch
marleymaniac: Actually two guys died. Why is the second guy, who tried to go for help, just a footnote in this story?
cheesepreeness: I love the ending of TFA..."oh and Eric also died." [sic]
mscleo: marleymaniac: Actually two guys died. Why is the second guy, who tried to go for help, just a footnote in this story?I'm guessing that the second guy isn't from Oregon
dustman81: What about broads climbing me?/6' tall
EngineerAU: Looks that way. The Denver Post has more about the second guy. Link
EngineerAU: Curious as to why going forward to the summit was the only choice.
Uzzah: EngineerAU: Curious as to why going forward to the summit was the only choice.The short version is: they picked the hardest possible route up, got surprised at how hard it was, and were underprepared for conditions. Once things started to go bad, they were close enough to the summit that they figured it would be easier to summit and find an easier route down from there, rather than to turn around and try to go back down the hard route they had come up.

xiola: EngineerAU: Looks that way. The Denver Post has more about the second guy. LinkA lesson for any climber. Taking a nap is never a good idea. He should have had a buddy looking for signs. FTA:Six hours later, Greg Nourse made it back down to the high camp. His brother limped into camp 90 minutes later, exhausted. Argentine EMTs advised Eric Nourse to climb down the mountain and not sleep. The oxygen content in his blood was dangerously low. Porters offered to carry their equipment down the mountain for them. But Greg Nourse said his brother felt that would have been admitting defeat."Eric wouldn't have any part of that. We carried our gear up the mountain, and after a little catnap he would carry it back down. He was never concerned about dying," Greg Nourse said.Minutes after Eric Nourse went to sleep in his tent, emergency workers tried to rouse him. His heart rate dropped. When it stopped, they tried to resuscitate him.But he was dead.
Indubitably: I like climbing women of all heights, weights, and measures.No ropes necessary.
Mark Ratner: I'm 6'11" and my wife is 3'4" so I'm getting a kick....
