    I thought it was his friend Cory (and another unnamed climber) who did the rescue?

    The article indicates otherwise:

    “There was a lot of discussion between the assembled professionals, until finally Sonnie Trotter, Cory Richards and Peter Roy scrambled up, put a harness on the lad and coaxed him down.”
