REDMOND, OR -- A Portland climber was hurt at Smith Rock, Monday afternoon, prompting a technical rescue. The 31-year-old woman rappelled past the end of her rope and fell about 25 feet to the ground, in an area of the State Park known as Cocaine Gully.

 

Deschutes County Search and Rescue arrived just before 4 p.m. and used a rope system to lower her down to the trail. The rescue operation took several hours and continued after sunset, concluding at about 9:30 p.m. 
 
Meghan Austin was eventually taken by wheeled litter to medics, who transported her to St. Charles Bend with serious but non-life threatening injuries.
