Part 1, Rock Climbing Rescue, El Capitan. A drunk climber has fallen and is only being held by the rope around his leg. This is around 10am and the Yosemite rescue team risks their life to save him. They did not know how well the rope was anchored by the drunk climber when the rescuer jumared up.

Ok he was drunk as I was right next to him when they had him in the litter. He was hauling bags on Zenyatta Mondatta in preparation to climb the route. I believe he tried a space body haul where he was a counter weight to haul up the bags. I heard he miscalculated the weight and went zinging down and got hung up in the ropes.
