Washington, Near Lake Wenatchee—On July 10, Bob Anderson (27), Ralph Kelso, and Darwin Clark were climbing a steep slope near Lake Wenatchee. Anderson reached a ledge from which he could not climb up or down. The party was apparently without a rope and had inadequate experience for this climb. His companion climbed down and notified the authorities. It was too late to effect a rescue so Anderson spent a night on the ledge.
