Write Up:
The day started overcast and cool which was perfect weather for the long, vertical approach to the rock scramble. The sky cleared and we had sunshine and warm temps for lunch at the peak. Park search and rescue was busy flying around Old Rag while we were eating. I later learned they were doing an evacuation of a climber who had fallen and broken his leg the day before. The helicopter could not do a pick up until weather conditions and visibility improved.
