    Sounds like they were on a training mission and hadn't planned on being there overnight. They gave out a distress call (they requested assistance) and apparently none of them are in the area they were in at that time. Yikes. Longs Peak is dangerous in the summer let alone winter/spring! It has been a snowy spring so it is definitely snow covered there right now.

    I'd say that's probably them.

    Isn't it so pretty?! Anyway, they zoomed in and I see at least 7 people. They made it to summit

    They took three down and they're on flat land now. Looks like they walked over to the ambulances sitting there

    Good news! I'm backcountry camping in RMNP on Thursday, but not getting anywhere near Long's Peak or any other climbs.
