Incorporated in 1948, Seattle Mountain Rescue is a volunteer organization of seasoned alpinists dedicated to saving lives through search, rescue, and mountain safety education. It specializes in mountainous terrain searches and high angle rescues, primarily in King County, Washington. It is a fully-accredited member of the Mountain Rescue Association and the King County Search and Rescue Association.


A few more photos from today's search as well as the route one of the teams took to give an idea of the amount of ground teams cover in a day...

It was awesome to see so many teams come together today to help with the search: King County Sheriff's Office Air Support, King County 4x4 Search and Rescue, King County Incident Support Team, SPART, Everett Mountain Rescue, Olympic Mountain Rescue, Tacoma Mountain Rescue Unit, Pierce County Explorer Search and Rescue, Snohomish County Search and Rescue Operations Support Unit, and The Soup Ladies.

We wanted to give a special shout out to King County Explorer Search and Rescue. It felt like they were all over the place today: helping in base; hiking up to Melakwa Pass; exploring Kaleetan, Pratt, and Olallie Lakes; and carrying group rescue gear. They also had a team spend the night at Hemlock Pass to help with radio relays since it is hard for teams to talk directly to base given the terrain. Awesome work!
