On December 1st, 2009, our Unit received word of a fallen climber at Rainbow Wall in Red Rock. At the time, it was reported that the climber had fallen approximately 140ft while conducting a solo climb on the Original Route. Our Air Unit, along with two Officers and two Mountain Rescue volunteers, responded to the call. They provided the necessary medical care and transport to get this climber off of the rock and on their way to the ER.

In the June 2010 issue of Rock and Ice, the story of what actually happened on this day is revealed. Although our rescue efforts are not outlined in the article, it's great to know that Creasser is doing well given the circumstances of his accident.
