A climber fell somewhere near Grassi Lakes in Canmore, AB this morning just before 9am. Sounds like they fell about 40ft and hit the ground. Not sure exactly where the accident took place yet but must have been somewhere remote since it took rescue crews 5+ hours to reach him and pull him out. Anybody know where they were climbing exactly?

Just got an update that said the climber has now been flown to foothills hospital in calgary in "serious but stable condition".

See the video in my post below.
