Helped rescue a climber named Dave in the Cirque on 26th of August. My trekking poles were used to splint his legs and I want to recover them. He told me that he is a guide from Jackson and that day he was soloing, probably the traverse, and fell at the hanging tower area. Many people helped that day and just before dark he flied out on the third helicopter that came in for the rescue. If anyone has any information please contact me.
