The Kelowna Fire Department went to great heights to rescue a stranded rock climber on the weekend.
According to the KFD, at 3:18 p.m. Saturday, it received a call from the RCMP asking for help with a climber who was stuck on a rock ledge in Woodhaven Regional Park in the Mission.
The department’s technical rope rescue team was assembled, along with E-4 crew, and headed to location at the end of Steele Road in the upper Mission.
RCMP officers were on scene and in contact with the climber, who was stuck approx. 150 feet from the top of a rock face.
Firefighters lowered a rescue climber to the stranded climber and used a harness lower them both to the bottom of the canyon where they were escorted out by the RCMP.
The Kelowna Fire Department is reminding outdoor enthusiasts to always let someone know where you will be hiking.
