    Dyatlov Pass Incident

    This is what have found on this: Captain Chernyshov stated: ‘About 10-15 metres from the tent we saw slippers and Dyatlov’s fur jacket. Oss, Svetlana. Don't Go There: Post Mortem (p. 192). LiberWriter.com. Kindle Edition. From the tent in the direction of the wind, i.e. in the direction...

    Dyatlov Pass Incident

    I believe Dyatlov's jacket is the perfect microcosm of the entire case because, citing another poster from another thread, according to various accounts, Igor's jacket was: Stuffed in a hole Hanging just at the entrance to the tent 10 metres from the entrance

    Dyatlov Pass Incident

    Humans' behavior is seldom as linear as its explanation, but the one thing that keeps bothering me is their unshod / underdressed condition. Especially if we consider the possibility of multiple/separate descents. What would have kept some of them on the slope for longer if not grabbing shoes...

    Dyatlov Pass Incident

    I have just learned the Dyatlov Pass case will be re-investigated for only three possible scenarios: avalanche, snow slip and (curiously) hurricane. I'm still trying to imagine what sort of element could force a group like this to leave their shelter without grabbing more clothes, shoes and...

    Dyatlov Pass Incident

    For anyone who has not read it yet, this is a 2019 Dyatlov Pass expedition report including an interesting explanation: https://dyatlovpass.com/swedish-russian-expedition-2019?lid=1 (SPOILER: The man thinks the group left the tent because of a katabatic wind, sees the flashlight as their own...

    Dyatlov Pass Incident

    What we know for certain is fairly limited and insufficient. That's why we can speculate rather freely. I spent a good amount of time contemplating all possible scenarios of the descent, but came to the conclusion they had no time to play around with it. Had one or two or more descended in...

    Dyatlov Pass Incident

    Definitely. That depends on the type of snow and also how snugly it concealed the rocks. When we get a heavy snowfall where I live and the snow lays thick, I'll confidently run down a steep set of rock-solid stairs that are so thickly covered you can't see them because any type of fall is...

    You mean someone tried to fall in there on purpose?

    Dyatlov Pass Incident

    From what we've seen of the ravine though, it does not look like a place to free-fall into. They would have rolled down. The bolded is another crucial part (I haven't seen discussed yet). As the rest of the ravine and the creek running through it was most likely frozen that night due to...

    Dyatlov Pass Incident

    I hope to finally put my thoughts down during the upcoming weekend, but my opinions keep changing every time I think about it. Dyatlov Pass is such a logical Ouroboros. You always come back to the start. For now; I've come across another interesting piece of something; a 3D model of the ravine...

    Dyatlov Pass Incident

    Yeah, I also noticed the camera cut, but I thought those red flags might have signaled certain distances or maybe even different altitudes. Body locations of course make more sense. There's plenty of interesting material out there, but speaking Russian/reading Azbuka seems essential.

    Dyatlov Pass Incident

    That's why it will be interesting to watch what the new investigation leads to, as the case has been officially reopened for two weeks.

    Dyatlov Pass Incident

    The site says you get a view of the bodies' location from the den perspective between 00:05 and 00:35. Unfortunately, I only understand very little Russian. Definitely check out those other videos as well, they help to frame and re-frame the overall picture, as they were shot during...

    Dyatlov Pass Incident

    @EnolaGaia Sorry about the delay, especially considering how brisk your answers are, but I will be getting back eventually. For now, I'll just post this (in case somebody missed it), which seems like the most detailed description of "the ravine" I have dug up so far, with a dozen of recent...

    Dyatlov Pass Incident

    Thank you for all the answers EnolaGaia. This is such a mind teaser! While we will never know for sure, I believe we still have enough pieces to try and fit them together in a way that clicks more than the other explanations, all if's and maybe's notwithstanding. One of the crucial points is...

    Dyatlov Pass Incident

    Hey guys, I just wanted to say that reading this thread up until June 2014 was a thrill! Quite comfortably the best thread on this topic, anywhere, with many, many good thinkers. I have also come to the conclusion that extreme and overwhelming cold and consequently bad decisions were the main...
