The area where they were or should I say might have been is not an area that one needs to anchor. I was not therebut from what I have read and know of the area they were on the ground on a hill. This hill is steep in some spots and is where the tail is.

I'm giving this information from what I have read and having climbed here many times and know the area very well. This could have happened even in the hike.

I wish a fast and speedy recovery
Bill
