Bellingham Climber Survives 60-Foot Fall Near Naches

Rescue crews helped save a climber who had fallen about 60 feet off a cliff near Naches on Saturday. Yakima County sheriff’s deputies say the 29-year-old man from Belliingham was climbing a cliff face when an anchor he had set pulled out of a rock and sent him falling down the cliff face.

The injured climber was airlifted to Yakima Regional Medical Center.

Officials say he was wearing safety equipment and a helmet when he fell.

The accident happened around 6:45 Saturday evening. Crews from the sheriff’s office, Naches and Yakima fire agencies, and other rescuers responded to help the fallen climber.
