The message board in Camp 4 is a good place to check to see if anyone found it.

We found the thumb @ the base. They flew it to San Fran. They attached it and is in hospital for the next week plus. Will post photos when I get home.
He slipped on a bannana peel on lead.
Was on the Nose route Thumbing around.
