BASE jumper rescued on Chief

 

A BASE jumper was rescued from the Stawamus Chief Monday afternoon.

The man had jumped from the Chief but got blown on to the rock face, where he was stranded.

The man secured himself on a ledge while he waited for search and rescue personnel to rappel down the mountain to him. Police said he did not appear injured.

On July 14 rescue crews had to rappel down the Chief to another stranded BASE jumper.
