In addition to the remains, skis, boots and other objects belonging to the then twenty-seven-year-old were discovered. Moder, who lived in Fort Collins near Denver, had left for Thunder Pass alone in mid-February 1983. When he didn't return after two to three days as planned, his roommate filed a missing persons report. In more than 30 centimeters of fresh snow, dozens of emergency personnel on skis and with search dogs tried for days to find the climber. In a cave they discovered Moder's sleeping bag and provisions.Updated Date: 06 November 2021, 00:00
