Hey, while climbing in the Whitney Portal area yesterday evening, I heard a pretty massive rumbling from somewhere up valley, and then a chopper flew into iceberg lake... coincidence or did something happen?

Glad everyone is ok. Any idea which route they used to descend (South Face or East Ridge) and where exactly they got stuck? If the first picture was taken during the rescue, it looks like they attempted to get off the East Ridge too early, by climbing or rapping down on the South side of the ridge ... makes no sense.
