    thats it. it looks lots tougher from this perspective, 6+ feet above the head of the person in position to climb, than it really is.
    The climb back out, with packs, was a lot like work; several interesting places, the crux being the corner drop above the slide.
    Five of us did it, but the stalwarts were Kevin Earl and Zig Sondelski, who went BACK in to get the EMTs to the patient, and then had to climb back out a second time.

They probably had it spent in the first 2 weeks. I am certain that donations would be welcome.

    And below is a request posted by Wayne County SAR last year. It would not have made a difference in this SAR, but it could in others.

We always begin our search at the vehicle. A good map or written instructions of your intended route could save precious time should a search occur. Stay safe and I hope you enjoy our canyons as much as I do. Thanks, Don

    When I talked to Kevin at the side of the road while he was waiting for SAR, I noticed a small injury on the side of his nose and asked about it. All he had time to say was that the upclimb was hard and that he had had some trouble on part of it.

    On another note, it was pretty weird to run into someone I see almost every day at work (I go past his office on the way to the printer) out in some random spot in southern Utah.

    also interesting to note - the Hog Canyons and most of North Wash is actually in Garfield County, the county seat being Panguitch, about 3-1/2 hours away. Good to see inter-county cooperation.
