NBC covered the climbers' plight most heavily: Kerry Sanders led with Kelly James' death some 300 feet below the summit and the as yet futile search for Brian Hall and Jerry Cooke, showing stunning footage of helicopter searches along snow-packed ridges. They are thought to have fallen into The Gullies "where 13 other mountaineers have died in the last 40 years."
Peter Alexander (at the tail of the Sanders videostream) followed up with survival tips for those of us contemplating a December mountain climb. CBS' Jerry Bowen had already shown us how snow caves work last Friday.
