A group of three mountaineers set off to climb a mountain. Their names were Jake, Louisa, and Arnel. As they were approaching the half way point of their climb, they ran into another group of mountaineers with four members, Daniel, Rachel, Sam and Trent. They decided to climb the mountain together, making it one group of seven mountaineers. Near the summit, one of the mountaineers, Daniel, fell ill, was air lifted to the hospital, and made a full recovery. Meanwhile at the top of the mountain, the mountaineers set camp. During the night while the mountaineers were asleep in their tents, a huge storm came overhead, with very strong winds. Near midnight all of the tents were thrown off the mountain sending the mountaineers falling 2,000 feet down onto jagged rocks. All but one mountaineer died. Who survived?

Perhaps you meant "only one survived" and not "all but one"?

Looked like it was going to be clever, but turned out to be terribly easy.

Whoops, didn't catch the "all but one" part when I edited this one. I'll ask Jake to fix it.

A bit too easy for my taste. Good one though!!!! :D :wink:

its obvious that Daniel was the one who survived because you stated he left ill and was AIR LIFTED off the mountain. But I still give you credit for even posting this 8) :D

What if the guy who became ill died on his way to the hospital, or what if he died in the hospital from the illness, even though he went to the hospital he could have still died.

yes, but it says that he made a full recovery :wink:
