I heard a rumor that there was a rappel accident on Sunday at the Trapps, left of High E. Anyone know anything? I hope everyone involved is okay.

There were three accidents at the preserve on Sunday. A hiker with a sprained ankle on the trail to Millbrook to be evacuated, an arm injury due to a climber\'s fall at Bonticou, and an accident at the Trapps. I was on trail crew till around 2pm at High E and there had been no accident there that I know of.. Radio chatter during our evac of the hiker was light and would indicate to me that all three injuries were not severe.
Sorry, no further info.

Based on what little I had to share, I hope so too.

Over on mountainproject the word is that a person rapped off the ends near Madame G\\\'s, resulting in arm injuries. The person was taken out on a litter because of the possibility of back/spinal injuries.

My partner coordinated the rescue with 2 of our students and a ranger from the preserve. The poor guy decked - I was told 20ft, which probably means 10ft, and was just laying there with a mangled arm and possibly an injured back/leg. They saw him as they were walking by, saw no one giving him medical attention (partner was on the phone with 911 or the preserve I believe), asked if he was ok and started the assessment.
