The Lure of Triplet Rocks – Missing Hiker Rescued

Well, at least a few people are reading this blog. We got word today that a hiker had gone missing Saturday while in the Twin Peaks / “3 rocks” area. Hmm… I would have to assume he saw the trip report below, since otherwise this “peak” is not well known.

He headed out late Friday night, seemingly camping on the summit of East Twin before attempting the route Saturday. He did not return Saturday night, so he must have hunkered down two nights before getting rescued. It seems he was well prepared and made the right decision to stay put when the weather turned worse. And based on the video he agrees that Triplet Ridge is BRUTAL. And you shouldn’t hike / climb this alone.

Scott, if you happen to read this blog, please leave a comment or contact me. (ze dot apelido at gmail). I’d love to get some more info, if you would be willing to share it.

ya, wonder what HIS “reason” was to go into the “NO HIKING ZONE”. If I had that mic I’d have asked him over and over what the heck he was doing in there anyway. “IT’S CLOSED DUDE! WHAT THE HECK YOU DOIN IN THERE ANYWAYZ!!”. if yer gonna ask anything you should ask THAT! can’t wait to hear what it was. Yet another self proclaimed “hiker” who openly breaks the laws of our National Forest. pathetic.

The webmaster must put a disclaimer on the front of this site for all walks in the forest to be posted going forward. Unless an individual has aquired the cardiovascular fortitiude to commit to such tasks.

hmm… even the multiple news reports didn’t mention anything about hiking in a closed area. Maybe that’s because NOBODY CARES.
