Heli’s near the Crestone’s on 9-15-18

We were climbing Humboldt peak on Saturday and there were 2 helicopters scanning the crestones for a few hours. Does anyone know if there was a rescue performed there?

Those first two words are always great.
Not that rescues are great, but, well, you get the idea.
