Rescue climbers were called out to north Deschutes County over the weekend. Rescuers were called out to Smith Rock State Park early Saturday night after two climbers under estimated the amount of rope they would need and were left hanging in the red wall climbing area. Jan Carlsen, 24, of Puyallup, Washington and Russell Howard, 22, of Gresham were trying to rappel down a wall and ran out of rope about 200 to 250 feet from the bottom of the rock wall.   The climbers used their cell phones to call for help and the Deschutes County Search and Rescue responded and helped the climbers continue their descent to safety. They were cold and hungry, but otherwise alright.

Most organizations are asking for cash, rather than supplies, so they can route help to where it’s needed most more quickly. Here are some of the largest groups with campaigns underway:
