Rock Climber Rescued in Colorado

There have already been several rescues of rock climbers this spring, with the latest coming this past weekend in Rocky Mountain National Park. Only a few details about the climber’s identity, the route or how the accident occurred were mentioned in the press release.

Park rangers were notified that a 37-year-old Fort Collins man sustained injuries after taking a 10-metre fall while climbing a route on Taylor Peak. A Northern Colorado Med Evac helicopter assisted the park’s Search and Rescue team with finding the climber.

Due to the climber’s injuries and location, the park also requested help from a Colorado National Guard helicopter from Buckley Air Force Base, a press release said.

The man was long-lined from the scene at about 8:30 p.m. on Sunday night and brought to Upper Beaver Meadows before being taken to Estes Park Health by ambulance.
