Successful Taboose Pass SAR

Grab your bear can or camp chair, kick your feet up and chew the fat about anything Sierra Nevada related that doesn't quite fit in any of the other forums. Within reason, (and the HST rules and guidelines) this is also an anything goes forum. Tell stories, discuss wilderness issues, music, or whatever else the High Sierra stirs up in your mind.

InyoCounty Sheriff's Dept:

On Saturday July 11th shortly after midnight, Inyo County Sheriff's Dispatch was notified that Patrick Keating, a 67 year old male from the Bay Area, was suffering from potential hypothermia after falling into a creek at the top of Taboose Pass.
Eight members of the Inyo County SAR team responded, and California Highway patrol helicopter H-40 out of Fresno was contacted and placed on standby to assist if needed.
Shortly after 1:00pm Keating was located approximately one half mile east of Taboose Pass. Keating was assisted by SAR members to the trail head with-out incident.
A big thank you goes out to our volunteer SAR members!

I don't give out specific route information, my belief is that it takes away from the whole adventure spirit of a trip, if you need every inch planned out, you'll have to get that from someone else.
