I was up on Devil's Kitchen yesterday morning. Was on top around 10am. We left Timberline parking lot around 230 or so and it was still very nice. There was a light wind the entire climb, but nothing major. The snow conditions were fantastic. Some clouds had blown in by 330 or so.

I saw a group of people at I-saddle maybe around 430 or so.

Don't want to talk about the charge for the rescue Cluck, just crossing my fingers for them and hoping for the best outcome.

 

Take care

Buddy just called to make sure I was not on hood. He's herein some sketchy info on perhaps a team of three having some issues.

 

Anyone here about this

Well I am deeply sorry to hear what happened to these folks. If I had known that something was going on so close to me I would have rushed over to help.

 

Again, I'm sorry for everybody's loss. RIP

Sorry to hear the bad news. Let's hope for the best of the rest of the team up there. My thoughts are with the families, and I know how hard this is as I too have lost family to the Mountains.
