Apparently this rescue took place in the St. Jean Couloir on October 6, 2003. A 48 year old male climber fell and broke his leg and wrist, and his partner went for help. The SAR team decided that a carry-out was inadvisable, and requested the helo. The closest available was in Pendleton Oregon, and did not arrive on scene until Monday morning (the accident occured Saturday afternoon). Here are the details.
"Got tight last night on absinthe and did knife tricks. Great success shooting the knife into the piano. The woodworms are so bad and eat hell out of all furniture that you can always claim the woodworms did it."
