Female hiker, within a party of 3, was on the Long Trail north of the Chin of Mt Mansfield and was unable to negotiate the scrambling / exposed rock and boulder segment just below the summit. 
 
After several unsuccessful attempts to talk the party through this section over the phone, the team was dispatched to assist the subject. 
 
SMR accessed the Long Trail from the top of the Toll Road; then hiked out to just beyond the Chin where the party was located. 
 
The party was cold and wet; SMR provided additional clothing immediately. With the assistance of SMR personnel, the subject was able to gain the summit and walk out to the Summit Station. 
 
SMR drove the party back to their car located at the Long Trail access point trail-head on Route 108.
