4th Matthew Greene Search 9/4-9/8/19

A forum to initiate member meet-up. Looking for a hiking/climbing/fishing/skiing/etc. partner, or are you planning a trip where you wouldn't mind having some company? Last minute invites can be just as fun as a well-planned group trip (sometimes even better) so don't be shy! And be sure to post a trip report to the appropriate forum when you get back.

I can finally post again; I was blacklisted for the last three days and could not post.

Yes, there will be another search in 2022.

I don't give out specific route information, my belief is that it takes away from the whole adventure spirit of a trip, if you need every inch planned out, you'll have to get that from someone else.

Hi Jason,

Good to hear from you! I hope you and your family have been safe and well!
We will have another search in 2022, which I hope you will be able to attend again. Any idea when the article about Matthew will be finished?

Hey Mav, I'm still working on it, for better or worse. It's been a real personal journey for me to come with you all. How is everyone from that search party doing?

Hello Mav,

I'm keen to participate again. Will we concentrate on the Minaret area again this year? Looking at the area at the top of the South Col glacier I searched last time with Bearzy, I wonder if searching inside the moats we saw would be a good idea? I would prefer to have a partner (other than Bearzy) to belay me from above, but could probably figure out a way to do it alone with a lot of prussiking.
I would take a strong spot-light and headlamps of course. This hot and dry year might have exposed some new area deep down there?

Let me know when, Ian.

This sort of moat, aka randkluft, sort of area I am thinking of.

There are a lot of potential moats to search. I would concentrate on areas directly below likely climbing routes.

Hi Harlen,

Most likely the Ritter-Banner area, with the main emphasis on Southeast Glacier and Clyde variation, and the North Face route.
