Buried alive! Rockslide on Nez Perce injures one
MOOSE, WY — A 54 year-old Wisconsin man sustained multiple traumatic injuries when he was buried by rockfall Tuesday morning while climbing the north face of Nez Perce. The slide occurred at 9:15 a.m.
Park rangers arrived on scene at 11:19 a.m. to find two Exum guides and bystanders frantically trying to unbury the victim, Phil White. Rangers assisted and then made sure no one else was buried in the slide. White and his two climbing partners reportedly intended to summit the Middle Teton on Tuesday.
White was flown to the park’s rescue cache at Lupine Meadows, landing at 12:13 p.m. Park medical personnel, led by Will Smith and AJ Wheeler, provided additional medical care. White was then transported to Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center in Idaho Falls by Air Idaho Rescue. His condition is not known at this time.
The incident remains under investigation. It is the 25th major search and rescue operation conducted in Grand Teton National Park this year.
