The Boulder County Sheriff’s Office and other agencies on Monday rescued a man who had become stuck on Boulder’s Second Flatiron.

At about 11:30 a.m. Monday, the sheriff’s office was notified of a man who was in trouble, and without proper equipment, on the lower portion of the Second Flatiron, just outside the Boulder city limits. The incident was reported via 911 from Boulder Open Space and Mountain Parks workers who were hiking in the area, according to a news release. The open space workers remained in the area to guide rescuers in.

Members of the Rocky Mountain Rescue Group hiked in to the scene with technical climbing equipment and lowered a rescuer to the man who was stuck. Both the rescuer and the subject of the rescue were lowered to the ground. The rescue took about four hours.

Agencies assisting with this rescue effort were Boulder County Sheriff’s Office, City of Boulder Open Space and Mountain Parks and the Rocky Mountain Rescue Group.
