On Sunday afternoon, the Alpine Rescue team along with other members of Sheriff’s Search and Rescue at Big Sky, were conducting scheduled training exercises at House Rock on the Gallatin River. A vehicle approached the Deputy there and stated that his girlfriend had been involved in a climbing accident nearby, falling 25’ and injuring her arm and back.
The victim, a 24 year old female visiting from Maine, had suffered a badly broken arm and a back injury. Sheriff’s SAR and Big Sky Fire Department personnel treated those injuries, immobilized the victim and transported her down the mountain to the staging area where Summit air was standing by. The victim was then transferred to the care of Summit Air personnel and flown to Bozeman Deaconess Hospital in Bozeman for further treatment.

The Sheriff’s office reminds everyone to always climb with a companion, check your gear, and familiarize yourself with the area you are climbing.
