Another death in Chicago Basin

Postby krussell » Wed Aug 08, 2012 8:10 am

Another fall in Chicago Basin. I don't believe this was on a 14er. It looks like it happened near Columbine Pass. Not many details yet.

Very Sad. I hope they are able to identify the body and notify the family fairly quickly.

Maybe near Jupiter? North of Columbine Pass.
