TERREBONNE, OR -- A climber at Smith Rock lost his grip and fell 15-feet, Friday afternoon. More than a dozen Deschutes County Search and Rescue volunteers responded to the area of the fall, where there are no roads or maintained trails. The 37-year-old Portland man was located about 125 feed down a vertical rock face.
The SAR team used a rope system to rappel down to him and bring him up from the ravine. Andrew Duncan was described as an experienced climber; he was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
