The call came in just after 12:30pm for a hiker stuck on a ridge above the first waterfall in Eaton Canyon. Team members deployed to Eaton Canyon and located the victim, on the ridgeline above canyon bottom where so many hikers end up.
The individuals position on the ridge did not require a highly technical rescue, instead, team members were able to set a nummber of hand lines, allowing them to gain access to the victim. Once at the victims location he was placed in a harness and secured to a hand line. Once safely secured, the process of getting down the ridge to canyon bottom began. By 4:30pm the victim was safely down from the ridge and the team was back at headquarters.
