I'm glad they were found safe and sound, unlike a hiker who has not been found
since Sept attempting to climb Split Mountain from Red Lake.

Must be a different hiker story I heard about - because I understood the guy realizing he was in the wrong chute, then climbed back out of near certain death and walked all the way down to Bench Lake drainage. He walked out to the road(long walk) to complete his rescue. Happy ending

There was a search around Split Mt -- though can't remember when. Guy left for a day hike from the east side. On return, he went down the next drainage north and almost to 395. Two days overdue when he was found. Don't know if that's what you're thinking of. I don't know of anything else up that direction. Haven't heard of anyone not found at all.
