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.
