The Colorado Hoist Rescue Team is a partnership between the Colorado Army National Guard and four search and rescue teams throughout the state. Together, they conduct rescues in the most difficult to reach places in Colorado.
In Sept. 2020, they were called to a rescue on one of Colorado's most famous and dangerous peaks, Crestone Needle. With a height of 14,203 feet, the elevation, weather, and terrain make rescues of any kind especially dangerous.
This video shows the complete story... starting with the two climbers that called for help all the way through the aftermath of the rescue which awarded the crew the prestigious DUSTOFF award.
After the video is complete, there will be a presentation on how the documentary was made and the greater initiative it falls under for the COARNG.
