^^I agree with ya Wrath, tourist, or anyone who doesn't know what they're doing,where they're going, or at least equiped to deal with the consequences should stick to somewhere else. Baker can can make you her bitch in a split second, even for seasoned riders. I still believe that someone who saw him in Swift solo without gear needed to speak up and say something. This whole thing could have been avoided, despite the guy's stupidity.
I did overhear a patroller saying yesterday that his buddy told him repeatedly not to drop on that side of ridge towards Swift. Dumbass didn't listen. Given the conditions and the route taken, dude is lucky beyond belief.
