Smith Rock Climber Rescued After Fall

TERREBONNE, OR -- A 24-year-old rock climber was taken to the hospital after falling about 20 feet at Smith Rock State Park, Monday morning.

 

Redmond Fire and Deschutes County Search and Rescue personnel responded to the area, just after 9:30 a.m. They treated the patient at the bottom of the “Forever I May Roam” climbing route, near Asterisk Pass.

 

The rescue operation took about three hours and involved a rope lowering system, before the climber was taken by wheeled litter to a waiting ambulance.
