Hiker rescued after getting stranded on cliff near Logan

Authorities are rescuing a hiker who spent a frigid night stranded on a cliff in northern Utah.

The Standard-Examiner in Ogden reports that Cache County Sheriff Chad Jensen said the hiker was hoisted out of Logan Canyon Monday morning. He wasn’t injured.

The 19-year-old Max Susman had called for help Sunday night after he hiked into a cliff area and couldn’t get down.

Rescue teams were unable to land a rescue helicopter that night and instead dropped supplies to get him through the night. That included a sleeping bag, food and a kit to start a fire.

Members of the rescue team hiked to the spot to spend the night with the Utah State University student as temperatures dipped below freezing.
