Vertical evacuation of injured party

Vertical evacuation of injured party

At 2:40 p.m. Friday, May 12, Boulder County Communications Center notified RMRG and partner agencies of an injured climber on the Bastille cliff formation in Eldorado Canyon State Park. Rescuers responded to the scene and deployed to the top of the cliff to prepare an evacuation. Rescuers completed a vertical evacuation down the north face of the Bastille to an ambulance on the road immediately below.

The injured party was wearing a helmet which was damaged by the accident. The individual was "leading" at the time of the accident. RMRG wishes the injured party a full and speedy recovery.
