A woman fell while scrambling in Hidden Gully and fell roughly 15 feet while descending in the approach gully and sustaining a fractured left lower leg.  The team reached the woman and immobilized her leg with a splint, vacuum mattress and litter, and administered pain medication.  She was evacuated from the gully using rope lowering systems and secondary belay lines. The team then performed five rope lowers of roughly 200 feet, with three litter attendants tethered to the litter to facilitate the evacuation.
