During a training exercise at the top of the tram, the team was informed that there were people that had been hiking to the Tram that had become stuck about 1500 feet below. Glenn Henderson and Debbiy Riegle made a phone call and recieved permission for a mission. They sent out a page and they also called Lee Arnson and Darrell Bell. Lee was putting his gear together and Darrell Bell started down for the White Van.

The forest service became involved and helped the people out. An abort was sent out. Both Lee and Darrell [got the word from the Mountain Center] ended the mission.
