Alpinist just posted this photo by Clint Helander of Ryan and the north side from another trip.

The Main Tower is the one on the left, Midget in the middle, and West Tower on right.

They climbed a new line on this side of the Main.

It has cleared off considerably.

They flew out about 3 hours ago to continue searching.

It is still an active rescue mission.

Good search conditions except for really bad instability.

This cam is looking from Juneau. Towers are up in the middle. McGuinness and Stroller White on the left. West Glacier trail skirts around the base of McGuinness. A lot of glacier between the trail and the Towers.

Bump for bad-ass alpinists getting through the hard stuff they have been training for all their lives.

It’s possible that they successfully descended to the glacier and something happened on the way to the skis.

RIP bro - thanks for the good times!

Marc’s dad sends the message below -
https://www.gofundme.com/592fn8w

To all of our friends near and far who have been supporting us and praying for Marc André I wanted you all to hear it from me first hand before it’s in the news. Sadly we have lost 2 really great climber and I lost a son I am very proud of. Thank you for the support during this difficult time. My heart is so broken...Part of me is gone with him...
Our family appreciates all of your prayers and we would like to ask for a time of privacy as we come to grip with these devastating developments... Marc-André was an amazing, loving man and he has touched many lives in so many ways. He will be remembered and loved forever. I know he is with our Lord and I will be with him again one day. ❤️”

All support for this page will now go to the family to manage and deal with the multitude of items they now have in front of them. As well as much needed respite.
Thank you to everyone for all your messages and contribution. Our community is strong and we will get though this as a loving community.

Thanks hoser for the words of Serge Leclerc, Marc-André's papa.

My deepest condolences to Marc-André's family, Brett and friends near and far.

We have lost a brilliant shining star. One of our very best ever.

Nice article on gripped. He mentions the first time Marc attempted the Grand Wall..Marc was always pushing...and he didnt just want to climb the GW...he wanted to link cruel shoes and the upper black dyke...

I, being somewhat normal said...lets keep this somewhat realistic...but he won, he always won...so I said ill lead cruel shoes you take the GW. He brought along a highschool friend and everyone was just knackered after cruel shoes and we bailed...

I had a lot of fun climbing with Marc back in those days, a couple summers later I was just following along in awe and enjoyed reminding him about bailing on the split pillar :)
