Heroic Rescue Attempts

Quite a story of trying to rescue stranded climbers in the Alps near Chamonix. I attached the topo below so you can see why Chamonix is such a hotspot of climbing – all kinds of climbing. If you enlarge the map, you can see the cable car which runs from downtown Chamonix to the top of a peak. Miles of glacier are accessible from the cable car. Also, the map shows many refuges/huts (red dots.)
