Like cats stuck in a tree, or what? Did they climb up there and then drop their rope?

That's an awesome landing, but I don't think I understand why it was necessary. It seems that the only passengers it took on were two people able to load themselves into the vehicle under their own power. They hardly seemed on the brink of death. I must be missing something.

Kudos to the pilot still.

edit: Never mind, I was looking for an injured adult. Looks like the first guy carried a child to the copter. Nice rescue.

I always wonder who was hanging around in the forground taking the video? Just some other random climber? Or was there a road, or something.
