Adirondack forest rangers go into overdrive amid weekend of technical rescues

North Country Public Radio - Mon, 10/03/2022 - 22:00
Last weekend, a woman fell 80 feet in a serious climbing accident in the Adirondack High Peaks. She was airlifted out of the mountains. That same day an injured hiker was carried off of Cascade Mountain and a day earlier an injured hiker was helped off the trail up to Street and Nye Mountains. Those rescues all took place while a major recovery mission was going on throughout the weekend in Wilmington. Andrew Lewis, a forest ranger in the High Peaks, led the recovery effort in Wilmington after a man in his late 60's fell into the Ausable River near Flume Falls. Rangers and other rescue crews have been searching for his body since last Thursday. Lewis, who is a union representative for forest rangers, says rescues have become increasingly more technical as hikers and climbers have more advanced gear and skills.
