FALL ON ROCK, WEATHER

New Hampshire, Owl’s Head Cliff

On May 12, 1985, the New Hampshire MRS responded to a call for a rescue of a fallen climber on Owl’s Head Cliff. They arrived and after a four hour search in the rain, were not able to find the victim. The victim and his partner were located by the local fire department. Victim had sustained a broken leg, so he had to be hauled 20 meters up the cliff, then only 100 meters to a vehicle. (Source: New Hampshire Mountain Rescue Service)
