Not quite ....

The four rescuers on top including Aron being lowered were all LEO Valley Rangers.

The two climbers who climbed up to the victim were from the rescue site.

There were 4 more a sar guys from the rescue site at the base.

A few of the Valley LEO rangers all are EL Cap climbers and Valley district LEO Ranger has done NIAD and Half Dome in a day several times.

These LEO Rangers are climbers and medics also .....

I hope the climber wasn't a guy named Jayce, last name unknown. I met a guy who was setting out for WFLT up in Yosemite the other day & he was planning to do it solo. He had some questions

Another super rescue done by the YOSAR crew!

Yosemite high-angle SAR is the state-of-the-art when it comes to this stuff. Well done.

YOSAR .... should be a reality TV show.

A rescue like this would open up some eyes and get good ratings....

just imagine the GO-PRO shots

With Werner as the STAR.
