THE MYSTERY PILOT
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.
