Sam, Charlie and Chris

Randy King took this image of Charlie, Sam Wick and Chris Olson at Camp Schurman on July 1, 2005. The Wentzel group ended up exhausted on the summit with no equipment to spend the night. A helicopter dropped survival gear on the top of the mountain and Chris and Sam climbed up in the late evening from Camp Schurman, in bitter wind conditions, to ensure their safety. Charlie, climbed up to the group from Camp Muir SOLO and all three walked the party and gear down the next day. The photo captures them as they arrived at Camp Schurman after saving lives and a long night on the mountain.

Aug 20, 2004 Charlie going for a rescue

Dave Uberauga took this photo of Charlie gearing up for another rescue of two ill-equipped climbers who went off-route and became stranded on the edge of a crevasse at dark. Charlie and Paul located them shortly after midnight, and retrieved them at first light.
