Ascent Trip ReportSite of the infamous search and rescue effort for Steve's buddy Robert(?) from Espanola. He took the wrong canyon down and wandered lost through the desert for about 30 hours until being found just before sunset near the Mexican border by one of the searchers in a pickup. Had to drink from a stock tank to stay hydrated. Search included two helicopters, a small one from Deming (a coyote-shooting bubble-fucker according to a local cowboy) and a Blackhawk from Davis-Monthan AFB.
