British Columbia, Purcell Range, Mt. Taurus. On July 22, Kenneth Carr (44) set out alone to climb the east shoulder of Mt. Taurus. His tracks were later followed by a search party for a short distance but then lost. It was presumed that he fell into a crevasse and was killed since this area had many crevasses and the rotten snow resulting from the warm weather and rain did not give good support.
