Washington Cascades, Mt. Index. On 21 August Craig Keyes (27) was climbing a difficult route on Mt. Index alone. He lost his grip on a 40-foot, near-vertical wall, fell about 20 feet and tumbled another 20 feet and landed on a ledge. Other climbers accidentally discovered him three days later. His injuries prevented his moving and he was very dehydrated when located.

Analysis: He should not have been climbing alone and no one knew of his location or plans.
