"Flat" irons Rescue

Postby Gene913 » Tue May 21, 2013 9:54 pm

According to the story, the hiker was "up high, between the second and third Flatirons."

Oh, Boulder...
And in other shocking news, a farmer was spotted at a feed store in Flagler.

"The college student, 21, ... ingested mushrooms, stripped off her clothes, ... After receiving a 911 call ... Boulder County Sheriff’s Office deputies and other assorted rescue personnel (35 in total) responded..." and another 47 thought they were hallucinating when they heard the call at first, then couldn't make it past the trail head traffic jam.
Not sure if I'll do more 14ers. The trip reports are too tiring. :wink:

What's the big deal?

This used to happen all the time in the '60s.

I'd been climbing the flatirons for 3 weeks in a row...figures this happens on the day we go to Boulder Canyon instead.

Good grief. Sounds a lot like that SAR in southern California where the two trippers were "lost" about a mile from the trailhead in a fairly simple canyon.
I need more dehydrogenase.

What's wrong with kids these day? Can't they hold their hallucinogens? I've climbed a few peaks (including Longs) while high on acid, and kept my clothes on and didn't get lost. Nobody would have wanted to see me naked, anyway.
