June 5, 2009: Three Boulder climbers
— Jonathan Copp, Micah Dash, and Wade Johnson —
are overdue, having missed their flight on June 3 from Chengdu, China. Copp and Dash are highly experienced alpinists and professional climbers who have many years experience tackling big unclimbed mountains around the world. They received the Mugs Stump Award grant for this expedition from the American Alpine Club in 2008 but had to delay the climb until now, due to political unrest in the region. Johnson (a photographer with Sender Films) was accompanying Dash and Copp to base camp and did not intend to attempt the climb to the summit.
