This video has been making the rounds in the online climbing community. Thought we’d share here too. Thankfully this climber was wearing a helmet. See if you can spot the PETZL gear.
First-hand video footage of Visitor Safety Specialists from Banff /Yoho/Kootenay National Parks conducting a technical helicopter “long-line” rescue. The lead climber of a rock climbing party has taken a 60 foot fall and suffered multiple injuries. They are four pitches up “Dan’s Delight”, a 5.7 rock climb on Cascade Mountain near the town of Banff, Alberta. More information: www.parksmountainsafety.ca
