Hikers recused after being stranded on cliff

Sparwood Search and Rescue say two hikers lost the trail and became stranded on a cliff above Elkford.

They decided that using a long line was the best option.

Fernie SAR was requested to help to attend with that capability while Elkford and Sparwood members staged a ground response in case of a weather change.

Responders say the hikers were well prepared and were carrying spare clothing, food and water in case they ran into trouble.
