five victims tested positive for the skookum and jolly viruses. self rescue from beautiful weather and views was performed with snowshoes, ice axes, crampons and small doses of headlamps.
the rescue route was in perfect condition and the rescue vehicle traveled on a plowed, paved road. the survivors are currently reported to be feeling fine, but hoping for another dose of mountains soon.

Did you have trouble finding the trail up that valley starting from the road?
extreme difficulty, just like the whole trip: followed a boot track that actually corresponded to the gps data i had. therefore the difficulty was putting one foot in front of another and occaissionaly having to interrupt our conversation a few moments to either look at the gps or the terrain. those moments where not often.
ps - love seeing your trip reports. just read your north ridge of mailbox t/r and really enjoyed it :>)
