Seriously? Its not like the goddamn helicopter flew in and landed on the side of the mountain to rescue them.
It flew over them and made sure they didnt go the wrong direction into very dangerous territory. Then they left...
You guys make it sound like they called in the damn national guard to fly from half way acros the country to rescue these guys with ropes off the side of a cliff.
What if those people HAD gone the wrong direction? No matter their experience, it sounds like it was pretty much sheer cliffs...sounds like a reasonable thing to do to check on them. I am sure if the people at grouse knew or were told who these people were and that they knew the way none of this would have happened, it sounds like the Senior management contact at Grouse that supposedly told these 4 it was ok is the one that failed here.
