  • Ridge Trail Rescue from Rt. 73

    We passed an ongoing rescue effort on 73 at 1:30pm today and again at 3:30. They were clearly using the Zander Scott Trailhead. Does anyone know what is happening?

      I was about to post about this. My friend just contacted me and said he and his daughter were hiking Giant and RPR yesterday. They heard that a 67-yo(?) Canadian passed away due to a heart attack.

      (NOTE: This is word-of-mouth, and I have not seen any official reports of this)

        More news: my friend said the sheriff held my friend and his daughter for about 20 mins at the bottom of the trail while the coroner took photos at the trailhead. His daughter thinks they passed him on the way up; no news on how the gentleman appeared. Apparently paraded away about a mile up the trail

          That is "passed away".

            It is always so sad to hear about someone passing away in the High Peaks, but he passed away in such a beautiful place doing something we all loved. My condolences and thoughts are with his family.
