On September 4th, 1940, Lynn V. Simmons was part of a Geological survey team working on Lamotte Peak at about 12,700 ft when a storm hit. At about 2 p.m., Simmons and his three coworkers began heading for spike camp, established on the head of Boundary Peak. Simmons lagged behind the others. He was last seen as he came down the saddle of Lamotte Peak on a long Rocky Ridge to Bald Ridge (about half a mile from the peak). His coworkers waved to him, and he waved back. He was never seen again, and his remains have not been located. Several storms in the following days/weeks dropped 6-8, inched snow, and hindered search efforts.
