Great news! Just got off the phone with dispatch and they have mad contact with Caleb! They have sent a ranger out to him and she said he sounds like he's doing alright. Thank you so much everyone for all of the help!

You can also just call 911 and tell them the route Caleb is doing. They will relay that info to the local sheriff office and SAR the covers that area.

Tell the park service that Caleb is on the Keyhole route. That’s the most popular one so they probably assumed that.

Hi everyone-- I am the wife of Caleb Moose W4XEN. Can anyone help me try to reach Caleb W4XEN on radio? He is currently descending Longs Peak and I received messages that he may be in trouble. Possibly experiencing heat exhaustion/out of water. Approx 30 minutes ago he was 4 miles from the end of the trial.  I have contacted the Dispatch for Rocky Mtn National park and they are trying to reach him. It would be a help to get his gps coordinates but I do not have those.

My hope is someone can reach him via radio or have details on the route he took so I can pass this information to dispatch/ranger. I knew he had big plans to talk to many of you today in this SOTA event.

My # is 336-870-4544 and would appreciate the help.
