Climber Falls From Matthes Crest After Proposing

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.

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.

I seem to recall this was posted last year. When I first read this I thought "not again". The article refers to Aug 2014 in fact.

Thanks GB.
Yeah, someone sent me that article, and I did not check the date because heard there was some SAR activity in Yosemite, after looking for myself, this is what it was about: http://abc30.com/news/helicopters-rescu ... rk/941454/
