a gal fell on the third pitch of the regular route, ripped a cam, ledged out, and broke both legs.


Chelan County Mountain Rescue Association volunteers staging at the Leavenworth Fish Hatchery for a rescue on Serpentine Arete on Dragontail were redirected to the Careno Crag mission. Thanks to the fortuitous positioning of rescue climbers and medics, the rescue was accomplished in less than two hours. The Lady was airlifted to Seattle (Harborview, I presume, but I haven't confirmed that). A mission report and photos can be found on the CCMRA Facebook page.
