Climber rescued off El Cap

Credit: Tom Evans

Yesterday, May 30 about 2 pm, a climber fell during a Nose climb at El Capitan in Yosemite. He suffered a broken leg and possibly a hip. The crack YOSAR team got him to safety. I defer to a great first person report by Tom Evans <HERE>. This is from the ELCap Reports site.

Be sure to read my story on YOSAR/PSAR in the July Yosemite Gazette – out in a month.
