Champlain Mountain, Maine

Champlain Mountain, Maine A 22-year-old Maine man fell about 60 feet while rock climbing Sunday morning in Acadia National Park and was airlifted to a Bangor hospital for treatment of apparently serious injuries.

Park Ranger Richard Rechholtz, who supervised the rescue operation, said the man was “free climbing” by himself on the South Wall of Champlain Mountain – near the Precipice Trail – when he slipped and landed on a boulder field around 10:30 a.m.
