Injured Climber Rescued From Old Rag

Shenandoah National Park

National Park News

A 51-year-old man was climbing the Skyline Wall on Old Rag Mountain earlier this week when he took a three-foot fall and fractured a leg. While the park’s ground team was mobilizing, initial rescuers stabilized the patient.  Due to the late hour and with concurrence from medical control, the decision was made for EMS/SAR personnel to spend the night on Old Rag with the man.  A US Park Police air rescue helicopter conducted a litter hoist evacuation the next day.
