Mono SAR Incidents

8/1- The team responded at 1505 for a 17 year old male with altitude sickness above Barney Lake, Twin Lakes Village. He was extracted by Helicopter H24

8/1- In the Virginia Lakes area a 50 year old female fell and sustained ankle and knee injuries. She was extracted by Helicopter H24.

8/4 - The Team was called out at 1300 regarding an overdue day hiker. The subject was a 60 year old male that was a bit lost by Crystal Crag. He was a day hiker, not a climber. In addition to being lost, his back was giving him problems. Luckily he could still walk so all that was needed was to assist him back to the trailhead at Lake George. He was also low on water and had no food, so we gave him both.

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.
