Grand Teton National Park rangers assisted by a Teton Interagency helicopter rescued a New York man from the Grand Teton Thursday evening after he was injured by falling rocks. Park Spokesperson Jenny Anzelmo says 28-year-old David Perlman of Brooklyn, New York was ascending the mountain between the Headwall and Lower Saddle when several rocks broke free striking him and causing a significant injury.   Anzelmo says a member of Perlman’s climbing party continued to the Lower Saddle and contacted two park rangers on a routine backcountry patrol around 6:00 pm, who immediately initiated a rescue; stabilizing Perlman’s injury and providing emergency medical care at the scene.  Then with the help of other climbers in the area, the rangers brought Perlman to the park’s seasonal hut on the Lower Saddle and waited for a helicopter to evacuate him from the mountain. Pearlman was flown inside the helicopter to Lupine Meadows, and taken in a park ambulance from there to St. John’s Medical Center in Jackson.  There was no word on his condition.  Anzelmo says Perlman had been on the first day of a two-day guided climb of the mountain when he was injured.

  • A hunt with no disasters isn’t as much fun - October 24, 2014
    Not long ago, I saw a message on one of the hunting blogs I like to read. The writer wanted hunters to send in accounts of disasters they’d had in the field. I bet he got swamped with emails. Every hunter I know has had at least one calamity in the woods. If you hunt, […]

  • 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 […]
