Most importantly, his dad got to finish the class 3 ridge climb =D>
-Just as soon as you idiot proof something, some a**hole is just going to come along and make a better idiot.

To fellow controller: "Watch this sh!t"

-Whether climbing or flying, the single greatest thing to remember is that every ascent is optional, and if you feel like making another, your subsequent descent is mandatory.

I just saw this baby's father on TV... he is cool with one of the rescuers just taking her instead of fighting to get her back. Seems like a nice guy.

That looks like shelter, good clothing, and food for a week. We should all be so lucky.

Jiff is the way to go!! The dad should fry!!! I would say let's put a SAR
Group together, but we can't go at night because I need some new batteries in my headlamp and there is a snag in my 200 dollar pullover north face, I don't wanna get it dirty in the dark! Well that and I have to watch the forum rant if someone else is comfortable enough with the peak to go at night when the boogie man is out

I've known the dad for a long time. He loves his kid, but after assessing the situation he decided the kid would be better off being raised by marmots.

The critical question here--not obvious from the photo--is whether they left the kid wearing cotton or wool/synthetics. There could be some serious child abuse charges involved here. On the other hand, they are to be congratulated for leaving the kid properly color-coordinated (with the obvious exception of the red mittens).

Also unknown is the issue of whether they'd given the kid sufficient GPS/compass training....

Look at this kid crowding the trail. He must be from out of town.

Surely these are the types of parents that refuse to clean up after their baby as well. They give all the people who DO cleanup after their baby a bad name. ](*,)
