British Columbia, Coast Range, Golden Ears. In June 1966, Leslie Evans and his son John (13) set out to climb the Golden Ears. Search began when they failed to return. The weather was bad and precise information on their objective was not available. A four day search revealed no trace and further searches in summer and fall were also fruitless. Evans had some experience and carried a rope, but was reported to be awaiting hospital treatment for trouble with a knee cartilage.
