Climber Treated And Evacuated Following 50-Foot Fall

Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park

National Park News

The park received a report of a serious fall and injury to a 23-year-old climber beneath Sunset Rock in the park’s Lookout Mountain area on the evening of July 27th. He’d fallen 50 feet, landing on a hiking trail. Responding park and local rescuers treated his injuries and began a carryout up to the rim of Sunset Rock. He was air-lifted that evening to Erlanger Hospital in Chattanooga with non-life-threatening injuries – a dislocated shoulder and a shattered left foot. Climbing is allowed in this area of the park.
