The Team was called for a carry out of an injured climber in the Owens River Gorge. The staging area was to be the 3rd (upper) parking area. Based on initial reports of the severity of the injury, Care Flight was called, as well as Mono County Medic 3 unit. Numerous bystanders, including a physician, RN, and others with medical training rendered aid, and transported the subject to the trailhead, most likely via one of the in situ litters stationed in the Gorge, where they were met by Medic 3.

Medic 3 stated that no further assistance was needed, and most of the responders turned around prior to arrival at the trailhead.
