I heard about this crash many years ago. My grandmother told me that they couldn't retrieve the bodies so they had a climbing crew go up with a priest/minister who was also a climber to actually have a funeral/last rights type service. Wow! The terrain up there is rugged Its a very beautiful and tragic place. I've always wondered what it was like up there. Don Hoff, Wyomingite living in Colorado <°(((((×{

I stumbled on this scene while doing the NE Ridge in 1989. I had no prior knowledge of the crash, it was a little spooky to just happen on it like that.

Crash site and debris from the New Tribes plane, NE Ridge Mt. Moran. A somber, slightly disturbing experience to climb through here.
