Another Accident at The Tourist Trap
posted: May 01, 2001
On May 5th a climber from Fairfax, California fell about 25 feet while climbing near Rat Race at the Tourist Trap. The climber was knocked unconscious and became tangled in his ropes during the fall. Ranger Neal Labrie climbed 30 feet to the climber where he treated his injuries before lowering him to waiting paramedics. After treatment at San Jose Valley Medical Center, the climber was released.
The CDF, American Medical Response and Calstar II Air Ambulance were also involved in the rescue. This was the second major climbing accident at the Tourist Trap in the past year.
