Estes Park - Jim Detterline vividly remembers the horror of watching a Longs Peak climber, reeling with altitude sickness, teeter off the sloping platters of rock and fall to his death 10 years ago.
" "He was jumping from one ledge to another, and his ankle just collapsed beneath him and he fell," said Detterline, a longtime climbing ranger at Rocky Mountain National Park."There was nothing I could do."
Detterline shepherds thousands of climbers attempting the ascent of the 14,259-foot peak each year, and he rescues those who run into trouble.
Detterline had gone up Longs that day in 1995 to assist one such climber, Jun Kamimura, a 33- year-old Boston graduate student with no climbing experience.Detterline was with Kamimura when he inexplicably began hopping down the rock ledges rather than slowly descending.Kamimura fell 400 feet to his death.
