Re: Rescue of Stranded Climbers

Case Number: 13-3430
29 June 2013

On Friday, 28 June 2013 at 9:45pm, the Boulder County Communications Center received a call from three climbers stuck on the 1st pitch of the “Fandango” route on the 1st Flatiron. They are experienced climbers and had been climbing the route when their rope got stuck in a crack. Shortly thereafter, an intense storm cell moved over the area, bringing hail, heavy rain, and extensive lightning activity.

Rescue personnel from Rocky Mountain Rescue Group, City of Boulder Mountain Parks, American Medical Response, and the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office responded to assist. Rescuers reached the climbers at approximately 11:00pm and began a technical rescue. By 00:15am, all three parties had been successfully evacuated down off the rock without injury and escorted back to the Bluebell shelter.

Sorry. I just refused to believe anybody could actually be that stupid.


It's an easy mistake to make.
