zorlack7: So they fell trying to raise money for people who got hurt killing other people illegally at the whim of the us government?

Lol karma.

If it's at the whim of the government, it isn't illegal.

Unless, of course, you know some other law they are bound by.

The AMC guide book to the White Mountains is written by humans rather than lawyers. It doesn't have a warning on every page saying you risk dying if you step out of doors. There are two or three exceptions where the "you'll get tired" or "ledge may be difficult" cautions escalate to real warnings. One of them is Huntington Ravine, the location of this avalanche. It is considered the most difficult regular trail in the mountains when ascending on a nice, dry summer day. I have seen pictures and thought to myself, "there is no trail on those rocks."  Not even tempting to me. (I have climbed by saner routes, on nice, dry summer days.)
