Somebody did go up and got rescued:

– 5 minutes before, a call had come in to rescue two hikers from Crown Mountain. Danks says the pair were completely unprepared for winter hiking conditions.
“They went all the way up Crown Mountain wearing runners, and they didn’t have any extra clothing, they had no micro-spikes, no ice axe, it’s just asking for trouble.”
