Here’s the better, original footage of the guy stuck on a cliff I filmed a couple of weeks ago. I was coming out of the Spanky’s Ladder zone on Blackcomb with the groupe I’m coaching, when we saw a bit of commotion and, eventually, this poor guy perched halfway up a nasty cliff with no way up or down. I had with me the camp video camera, so I was able to get a few good close-ups of him hanging on for his life. As comical as it was that anyone would keep going and get themself into such a bad spot, we where also all very worried for him. Shortly after, 6-7 patrollers started showing up with lots of ropes, but we had to leave before we could see the actual rescue. I heard that after 1-2 hours they managed to get him out of there. He was seen later having a beer with his buddy at the GLC. He’s alright!

He was reportedly uninjured and was later seen drinking at beer in the town the same afternoon.

How he came to be in quite such a precarious position is anyone’s guess…

As is why he didn’t notice he was getting into as much trouble as he was!
