FALL ON ICE, SOLO CLIMBING

British Columbia, Canadian Rockies, Haffner Creek

On December 18, CC was solo ice climbing in Haffner Creek in Kootenay National Park when he fell and sustained injuries to his shoulder and collarbone. A nearby UIAGM Mountain guide came to his assistance and called for help on his radio. The patient was able to walk with help and the guide brought him to the trailhead where the ambulance picked him up. (Source: Brad White, Banff National Park Mountain Safety Specialist)
