Ice climber rescued after Friday fall
James Nupp, 64, was hiking what is known as "shoestring gully" with a friend when he slipped and fell around noon Friday, sustaining multiple injuries that left him unable to walk.
About a dozen volunteers from the Mountain Rescue Service helped five conservation officers from Fish and Game carry Nupp down three quarters of a mile of very steep and icy terrain, authorities said.
Fish and Game reminds people to pack appropriate clothing and equipment while hiking. Hikes often take longer than anticipated and weather is unpredictable. Having appropriate gear aides in safety. More information is available at www.hikesafe.com.
