Mount Frances Fatalities On May 23, two climbers were reported overdue from an attempt to climb Mount Frances when they did not returned to the Kahiltna basecamp as planned.

In response, NPS rangers flew a reconnaissance mission and spot-ted dark shapes in what appeared to be avalanche debris at the bottom of a significant gully on the west side of Mount Frances. Upon landing near the location, rangers uncovered the bodies of the two missing climbers and determined that they had either been swept off of the face by an avalanche or had fallen from a point high on their climbing route.

Both were deceased and had suffered significant trauma associated with a long fall in complex terrain. Both bodies were recovered. Fatal Fall on Autobahn Late in the day on May 25, a guided group of four three climbers and one guide fell while descending the Autobahn just below Denali Pass at 18, feet. According to reports by the two surviving team members, the team had started their descent with the guide at the rear of the rope and the three climbers in front.

The climber leading the way down was having difficulty locating the fixed anchors to clip their climbing rope into for protection; thus, the guide made the decision to reverse the order of the rope team and descend first with the three climbers following.

Shortly after resuming the descent from Denali Pass, one of the climbers fell and the team was not able to arrest their fall, which continued to the bottom of the slope on the Upper Peters Glacier some 1, feet below. The guide and one client perished, while the other two clients survived with significant injuries. NPS rangers, a large contingent of volunteers, and Air National Guard Pararescuemen at high camp responded and undertook significant measures to save the life of one of the climbers, including an emergency tracheotomy.

Three Cases of Altitude Illness on Summit Day An NPS climbing ranger and four volunteers were descending from the summit of Denali and came across a solo climber who was ataxic and appeared to be suffering from altitude illness.

The patrol determined that the soloist was unable to descend under his own power and required a rescue. While they were attending to this climber and making arrangements for an air evacuation, another climber approached their location and collapsed into the snow face first.

Medically trained volunteers made a rapid assessment of this patient and likewise determined that he was suffering from altitude illness and could not descend under his own power. The NPS patrol members then continued their descent, but were soon notified via radio of a third climber in distress near the 18,foot level on the upper mountain.

They quickly descended to this location and determined that yet again, the climber was suffering from altitude illness and could not descend. The third climber was also evacuated via short haul to base camp and transferred to an air ambulance. Cardiac Event on the Lower Kahiltna On June 7, an NPS mountaineering patrol encountered a climber at approximately 7, feet on the lower Kahiltna Glacier who was experiencing significant chest pain and labored breathing.

The patient initially declined medical treatment, but after consultation with medical personnel, consented to treatment and he was evacuated via air ambulance from his location on the glacier. Fatal Cardiac Arrest at High Camp A year old male went into sudden cardiac arrest in his tent at high camp on June 10 after climbing to the summit of Denali earlier that day. The team that he had climbed to the summit with later reported that the climber had suffered from altitude illness to the point of vomiting several times, stumbling, and losing his footing while descending to high camp.

Upon his arrival at high camp, his climbing companions suggested that he check in with NPS rangers at high camp but the climber stated that he felt fine and would prefer to take a nap.

Shortly thereafter, they did not hear any breathing sounds and they opened his sleeping bag to find him unresponsive and not breathing. The tent mates notified NPS rangers who initiated CPR which was terminated after 30 minutes without finding signs of a pulse. After conferring with the NPS medical director, the climber was pronounced dead. Poor weather delayed recovery of his body until June Altitude Illness at 14, feet A client on a guided expedition began to display symptoms of High Altitude Pulmonary Edema HAPEincluding a persistent headache, shortness of breath, elevated pulse and respirations, a productive cough, and wet lung sounds.

He received medical treatment at the 14, foot camp. His condition improved over time and he was eventually able to rejoin his team and descend under his own power. Solo Climber Search and Recovery On the evening of June 28, a guided group at high camp contacted NPS rangers at the 14,foot camp via radio to report that a solo climber had been on the upper mountain for over 24 hours and had not yet returned to his tent at high camp.

NPS rangers notified Talkeetna personnel of the potential need for a search and rescue operation which, due to weather and time of day, could not commence until the morning. The climber was last seen ascending from high camp to Denali Pass. There were no other climbing parties on the upper mountain at this time. The NPS launched a full scale search via ground and air. During the second day of the search, NPS rangers at the 14,foot camp spotted what appeared to be a body at the base of a long gully below the summit plateau known as the Orient Express.

The NPS helicopter with a ranger on board flew to the site and confirmed that it did appear to be a body with clothing matching the description of that of the missing climber. Rangers and volunteers at the 14,foot camp climbed to the site and confirmed the identity of the missing climber, then recovered his remains.

Events leading up to the climbers fall and death are not known, though it was discovered that he had left his backpack and skis at a point close to the entrance to the Orient Couloir.
