It's good to know I'm not the only one who got lost a few years ago while going down after summiting Mt. Olympus. I was sure it would be easy to find my way back to the trailhead, but not so --- fortunately I'd allowed plenty of time to get lost, retrace steps, get lost, hike in circles, get more lost, etc. Eventually I made it back, and I testify to the truthfulness of this story.

Leave them there if they get lost or hurt. Death is just part of the wilderness experience. Those so stupid as to go unprepared earn what happens.
