NORTH CONWAY — A climber was hurt on Cathedral Ledge Sunday morning.
Sean Goodrich, 45 of Yarmouth, Maine was climbing with a partner when he slipped. Before a rope could stop his fall, Goodrich hit the cliff face.
His partner lowered Goodrich to a narrow ledge, and nearby climbers called 911 for help.
Bartlett-Jackson Emergency Medical Service, the North Conway Fire Department and members of Mountain Rescue Service responded. Rescuers hiked down from the summit and walked out a
ledge toward Goodrich. Mountain Rescue
Service members climbed up to Goodrich and placed him in a litter. They lowered up to Sean. They placed him in a litter, and lowered him to the
ledge where additional rescuers and climbers carried him off of the cliff and back to the summit.
Goodrich arrived at the summit around 3 p.m., and was taken by ambulance to the Memorial Hospital in Conway for treatment of serious but non-life threatening injuries.
