Yosemite Rescue

pic15elcap3This happened in ‘05 so it’s not recent, but there are great photos of how they rescued climbers who were 1,400 feet up. They basically lowered rescuers from the summit to the ground about 3,000 feet below.  The photo above shows them cooling off the rope - so it’s not damaged from heat - as it is lowered about 3,000 feet.  The photo below shows 2 climbers 1,o00 feet below the summit.
