Not that this can really be helped, I'm always a little cautious around talus that's been in snow. I remember soloing the (east?) ridge of that years ago; surprised the glacier is still there given how tiny it was then. Hopefully I don't be in one of these articles in the future.

MP bro Alex was caught in a similar situation at Duck Lake, and he reports (if I read his comment correctly) that his medics indicated yet a *third* similar incident had occurred this week:

Glad everyone made it out ok!  But it makes a guy rethink scrambling solo...   :-(

David, yeah, he TXTed me and thought it was the same incident until a dude from Yosemite commented that the Coness incident involved an amputation.

So I guess not everyone made it out "ok"

Edit: This is from the grapevine and not from someone with 1st hand knowledge
