Colorado, Pikes Peak—On 12 August, Mrs. Inestine B. Roberts (88), had made her 14th climb of Pikes Peak. She started the descent but night fell and she bivouaced which had been her custom on previous climbs. She was seen on the 13th and reported all was well. Some time after that she apparently suffered a heart attack and died.
