Yesterday afternoon NSR SAR Managers received a call from North Vancouver RCMP about a stranded hiker on the front side of Grouse Mountain. After a brief conversation with the subject, managers were able to get his approximate GPS location. The subject, originally heading up the skyline trail, had become lost and ended up in a very steep area near Mackay Creek.
Members were dispatched to the area by ground, and located the subject shortly after dark. Utilizing headlamps, the members then escorted the subject out to safety.
