IDYLLWILD - It was one month ago today - on Saturday Aug. 30 - when two Orange County climbers were severely injured after a 100-foot leader fall at Suicide Rock.
Both are expected to fully recover, thanks to the teamwork of other climbers already at Suicide and firefighter-paramedics from Idyllwild and Pine Cove.
In the photo above, a climber works with firefighters to stabilize one of the injured on a trail at the base of Suicide Rock.
Reports on the accident and rescues are here and here.
