Losing 6000 feet over the Rockies after departing DEN is a pretty major drop.

TThat's a pretty major drop, but with the mountains right there it's not unbelievable that they encountered a wind sheer of some sort

Is there more to the story?
Link does show a 10,000 ft drop in a couple of minutes and return to DEN.
