Rangers Rescue Multiple Climbers

Rangers Fund

Grand Teton National Park rangers were involved in the rescue and aerial evacuation of two injured climbers from the Lower Saddle of the Grand Teton yesterday. Each of the climbers was injured in separate, unrelated accidents while ascending the Grand Teton. One of the accidents occurred on Wednesday afternoon and the other yesterday morning. Park Spokesperson Jackie Skaggs says 39 year-old Todd Hanna of Austin, Texas injured an ankle when a rock he had grabbed pulled loose and fell while he was on a guided climb.  While he was being loaded into a helicopter at the Lower Saddle of the Grand, Skaggs says rangers were approached by other climbers who reported the second injured climber.  24 year-old Hannah Marshburn of Jackson had fallen at the Golden Staircase of the Exum Ridge and sustained injuries to her head and face.  Rangers rendered emergency medical care to her and flew the two climbers down to the rescue cache in Lupine Meadows by late morning.

  • GPS will sometimes lead you to astray - August 29, 2014
    At the risk of sounding like I’ve been watching too much Top Gear, I need to go off on a bit of a rant right now. The good folks at Nissan let me drive a Titan for two full months, which was really nice of them. And it’s done a pretty good job of filling […]
