Park officials say Tom and his climbing partner intended to spend Friday night at a backcountry camping area before climbing the Grand Teton on Saturday.The Park Service says 911 calls reported that a man fell nearly 100 feet and was unconscious. Two physicians in the area were providing emergency medical care when rangers arrived. Weather and darkness forced rangers to delay the recovery operation until Saturday morning.
