The SSCA First Responder Kit out in the Needles

For the past few years we have maintained a First Responder Kit and Litter out in the notch between the Sorcerer and Witch Needle, a place that see lots of climbing traffic. The First Responder Kit is for ANY medical needs. All we ask is that anyone who uses it tell us so that we know what to replace when we make our yearly restocking around the beginning of the climbing season. The litter is also available for serious injuries that would involve a carry out. Emergency response times out at the rock can be several hours, and this could be the only means to save a life.
