Chilliwack, Hope SAR Rescue Hikers Off Needle Peak

Coquihalla Summit –  Chilliwack SAR Search and Rescue along with Hope SAR were called into action on Saturday to rescue two hikers off Needle Peak. This is close to the Coquiahalla Summit.

The two stranded hikers were on the west side of Needle Peak. One injured their arm, jamming it in between two boulders to stop themselves from sliding.

Both were long lined to safety.

Chilliwack SAR‘s Dan Macauliffe said the man and woman were lucky. The two were on a ledge that was next to a 250 foot drop. The two were off the trail.
