I saw about 6 cop cars shoot past me on the road up there today. Hope everyone is ok. Josh Allred

I did not know that this accident had occured, and was up on that route this morning. I grabbed a few cams that were still in the crack. Hopefully you're OK and want them back. Get a hold of me. Ari Menitove

I looks like it was an impressive effort by the SAR team:

Pretty impressive pulley/zip line system they put up there. I wonder how long it took to put up.

I'm not too familiar with this area, but it looked like the rescue team could have more easily carried him on the stretcher and hiked him out. But I guess they know better than me.
