sounded like they were climbers from the description

Chris, you on a rescue team? Al, any idea what time? We were up top with our guest around 530 or so yesterday evening and nothing seemed amiss either on the trip up or down.

Hi Danf
Yes, AVSAR. I am not at liberty to say but can tell you there was in fact a bad accident over the top of airation that resulted in an 80' fall. Climber was in emergency sugery last night at Memorial. I am sure details will come available after it is investigated and the individual stabilized.

Fell from above the the anchors of Airation, P1?  I do not think the crack is 80 feet tall to the tree.
Good thing he/she did not go all the way down .....

No...wandering well above the anchor...well above and to the right.
