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.

  • My new used truck may be the death of me - October 23, 2014
    Not long ago, I brought home a 1994 Ford F-250. It’s not much to look at, but it’s even worse to drive. About the only things it has going for it are that it’s mechanically sound, and it’s technically a vehicle. I’ve named it Clunk, for good reason. When you shift it into either drive […]
