Janet Johnson! she was one of those ghosts mentioned in Andinismo clubs
She was a teacher, her body was never found, the other guy that dies was a NASA engineer and his body was found.

Hope they get some info out of that film, but I doubt they will find what went wrong

The camera (Nikormat) and her left arm were found in 2020!

Her body was indeed found. It's all in the NYT article. Her Nikkormat was found containing exposed film, which has been processed.

Indeed, but in the mid-80s information was a lot slower than it is today
it was a legend, kind of a campfire ghost story that we heard

This was a very interesting story. The cold and dry weather certainly preserved the color film.
