(KSL News) A 20-year-old man was hospitalized this afternoon after he fell on the Mount Olympus trail.
Rescuers said the man was climbing with a friend on some boulders about 300 yards from the trail head when he slipped and fell about 25 feet. He broke bones in both his legs. Rain was falling at the time, so the rocks were likely slick.
After he was carried down on a stretcher, he was flown to the hospital.
Rescuers said the man was not using any climbing gear.
