Not sure I was climbing on Turlock my friends heard something that sounded like a fall, but no one called for any help. There were people up in the Pin Scars area but no one seemed to be panicked in any way. Next thing we new the Paramedics showed up. It appears someone may have fallen from the Pin Scars above Turlock, that is where they headed to. The best I can tell from my photos is the person they air lifted out appeared to have on climbing shoes. He fell about 40 to 80 feet we were told. Did not get any names though.

I'd be interested to hear what happened if someone gets the full story.
