Article: Injured Climber Survives 5 Days on Bugs, Berries
I am a member of the Mountain Rescue Unit dispatched to look for this man.

While not an experienced climber, he is young, brute tough, and lucky up until the events that occured on Mount Adams.

This is a prime example of the "Fast and Light" approach being taken up by those without the experience to get away with it.

This man is in a world of hurt right now, and will likely be suffering for the next few months. Wicked... No.

Credit owed to Derek for staying alive, but with a bit more knowledge and the bare essentials, he could have stayed out of the papers.
