I was there in a party of three. Two of us were inside the cave belaying and the leader was about 10 -15 feet up from the right side of the cave when he heard a thud and then saw this person go all the way to the tracks. 

Our leader downclimbed back to us and we all rapped from the cave to assist.  By the time we got down to the tracks the gentlemen was already in the litter and we assisted with the carry back to the parking lot.

Very happy to hear he will be alright.  He is very lucky that there were lots of good people around to assist.

Is there a litter on-site at Frankenstein?  Where?

I believe the rescue cache is at the lower parking lot or just above the lower parking lot on the right side of the road headed uphill. I found a picture of it online but it's copyrighted so I cannot put it inline but here is a link to the picture.

Really good to hear that he is going to make it. Hard to erase the image of the litter moving down the railroad tracks....knowing he was badly hurt.  I wish him a speedy and full recovery!

Thanks for the correction.

I wonder if they moved it there sometime in the past 10 years or if I just have a bad memory? I'm pretty sure it used to hang on the side of that rescue cache.

I have posted this before, but it is appropriate to mention it again...

The rescue litter is located at Bill King's house, at the top of the Arethusa road. It is located under his front porch and has been the for many years. He has a land line and can easily call for help as there is minimal cell service in the Notch. There is a also pay phone at the Dry River Campground just north of Arethusa road, directly across from the Amphitheater.

Bill is a great guy, he is NOT a ranger. Whenever you see him, say hi. He and his wife live there full time, so the next time you decide to take a pee or dump right there, remember it's basically in his front yard!

The old rescue cache was placed there in the early 80's.  It was a donated repurposed Concord Electric meter shed.
