We climbed pyramid on Friday and backed of Maroon on Saturday due to early weather. One other party of 6 on Pyramid, lots of people on Maroon. Lots of people hiking 4 pass loop.

Unfortunately I did not see him.

I also climbed Pyramid on Friday (7/20) and did not see him. My heart drops everytime I see one of these treads!

I sure am hoping and wishing for a happy outcome. Thoughts and prayers to everyone involved :(
