THE MYSTERY PI­LOT

Climbing - - BASECAMP - JACK TACKLE, VIA EMAIL

In re­sponse to the Ed Note photo, No. 363: The pi­lot with Mugs Stump was Jay Hud­son, Cliff Hud­son’s son. He and Cliff flew Jim Donini and me into Mt. Hunter in 1985 when we did the Di­a­mond

Arête. Mugs and Jamie Lo­gan ( then Jim) also helped res­cue my climb­ing part­ner on my first at­tempt on Isis in 1979. Ken Cur­rens broke his fe­mur in a 250- foot leader fall. Mugs and Lo­gan put aside their at­tempt on the East Face of the Moose’s Tooth and helped me res­cue Ken.
