Hiker rescued 400 feet above canyon bottom - June 15, 2017

On June 15, just after 2:00PM, The Altadena Mountain Rescue Team was activated for the rescue of a female hiker stranded on a cliff in Eaton Canyon, in the Angeles National Forest. The hiker called 911 but was unable to provide details as to her location other than stating that she “climbed up the side of a mountain in Eaton Canyon”. The hiker was able to send photographs of her location and team members used those to determine her position. A crew began to climb to her location, approximately 400 feet above canyon bottom atop a steep ridge line. The hiker was not injured and was lowered to canyon bottom with a team member’s assistance. The hiker, a 22 year old female resident of Bell Gardens was not on any marked trail. Once safely down, she was escorted to her vehicle near the Eaton Canyon Nature Center. This incident concluded at 6:00PM.
