That crew administered first aid while waiting for a stretcher and a utility terrain vehicle (UTV).

The UTV then transported the rock climber to the Myra Canyon parking lot, with COSAR thanking hikers and bikers on the KVR trail for their patience.

The rescue was COSAR’s 78th of the year. Last year, COSAR recorded an all-time high of 84 incidents.
