Climber Rescued on Cascade Mountain in Banff National Park

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:
