Injured Hiker Rescued From Mt. Vesper Near Granite Falls
October 10, 2017



(GRANITE FALLS, WA.) – On Sunday, the Snohomish County Sheriff's Search and Rescue Unit and volunteers from Snohomish County Volunteer Search and Rescue rescued an adult male hiker from Mt. Vesper, a granite-covered peak near Granite Falls that is a popular hiking and climbing destination.

It's located about 18 miles south of Darrington and 21 miles east of Granite Falls, in the Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest.

A sheriff's office statement says the weekend hiker "slipped down a gully approximately 20-30 feet and sustained a head and back injury."

His partner hiked out to the Sunrise Mine Trailhead and drove several miles to the Verlot Visitor Center to call 911 around 2 p.m.

The SnoHawk 10 chopper responded and delivered a rescue technician and flight medic to the ground where the man was located and hoisted him out.

He was transported to Taylor’s Landing and taken by aid car to the hospital where he was treated for multiple back fractures.

One deputy pilot, 1 volunteer pilot, 1 volunteer rescue technician, 1 volunteer flight medic and 1 volunteer crew chief, as well as, 1 SAR sergeant and 1 USFS law enforcement officer responded.

The Northwest Trails Association says that while accidents are rare on Mt. Vesper, "Falls of 10-20 feet are certainly possible in places, and it’s also possible to wander into parts of the mountain with greater exposure."
