Mono SAR Incident Waugh Lake 7/30

Mono SAR:
A SPOT emergency beacon activation on the Muir Trail near Waugh Lake was reported to OES as possible altitude sickness for a 36 year old woman. The Team responded and sent in 3 field teams. CHP Helicopter H40 also responded and located the subject. H40 landed at June Mountain Parking lot, and boarded a SAR member, who was lowered to the subject for assessment and packaging for hoisting. Both were flown back to the June Mountain parking lot, then the subject was flown to Fresno for medical care

I don't give out specific route information, my belief is that it takes away from the whole adventure spirit of a trip, if you need every inch planned out, you'll have to get that from someone else.

Have a safer backcountry experience by using the HST ReConn Form 2.0, named after Larry Conn, a HST member:
