The group terminated up spending the night. Patterson says they’re facilitate one another climb to the summit of Longs Peak Friday and that rangers are facilitating as needed.
Park rangers plan to fly them down from the snowy top by helicopter if weather permits.
The route the personnel are taking is not as technical as some but still requires climbers to cross a steep ice field and a ledge that is very narrow at points.
Making contact with the military personnel may be difficult because there is little cell phone service where these individuals are, Fox 31 reported, citing the Colorado Division of Fire Prevention and Control.
