Grand Teton National Park Rangers rescue an injured climber from Death Canyon in another operation pushing darkness — the second in as many nights.
Lauren Mclean, 25, from Oregon, fell about 25 feet while climbing a popular route in Death Canyon called the Snaz, authorities said.
Mclean suffered significant injuries when she fell because her belay system failed, and landed feet first on a ledge at the base of the last pitch.
A member of Mclean’s climbing party notified Teton Interagency Dispatch Center of the incident via cell phone.
Mclean was taken out of the canyon by short-haul flight in an aerial evacuation suit then eventually transported by air to the University of Utah Medical Center in Salt Lake City, Utah, for additional medical care.
