Was climbing Weissner on saturday around 4pm and watched a medevac from what appeared to be the east bluff.  Have been looking for reports but don't see anything on local news.  Hoping it was just training but seems odd to do on a busy weekend.  Any info?  Really hope anybody involved is ok.

Word on the street is that someone was pinned under a boulder in a boulder field below the east bluff.  I even read a report that the chopper was needed to move the boulder?  That is hard to believe that S&R would go down that road...

Wow, seems very fortunate that just appears to be relatively minor.  Hope for a quick recovery for them.  Thanks for the information.

Heard the chopper, but didn't see it while climbing on East Bluff.  VERY loud.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
