Ascent Trip Report

Lena Creek approach. Day trip with David Salinger and Laura Ziemer. Witnessed an accident when a climber who was glissading the descent gully broke through the thin snow in the center of the gully and fell into the creek below. He broke his leg/femur? His climbing partners hobbled him down to their camp in the forest. We hiked out and called on a pay phone (!!) for help/rescue and were told help would come the next morning, for it was too late to send a party up that evening. Late May/early June, 1995. Photos on film.
