NSR HETS members and Talon Helicopters completed a long line rescue of two male hikers near Mt Coliseum on Sunday. One of the hikers had developed severe leg cramps and could not walk.

I was actually there when this rescue took place. My friend and I assisted in flagging down the helicopter prior to the long-line extract.
I was also given a pair of Black Diamond trekking poles (to carry down / out of the woods) which an earlier hiker had lent to the man who was immobilized with leg cramps. I was hoping to track down the individual who had lent the trekking poles to the immobilized individual so I can ensure their safe return. I believe the woman’s name was Nancy (???)…unfortunately I wasn’t able to grab any contact information from the individuals there that day. If anyone (north shore rescue or otherwise) can provide info on how to get in touch with the owner of these poles, please send me an email at: [email protected]
