Published by under Rescues

Two 20-year-old hikers hiked Squaw Peak and got caught by darkness and tall cliffs on their way down a ridge into Little Rock Canyon, north of Rock Canyon. They built a fire while SAR hiked from the Squaw Peak Overlook to assist them with extra clothing, water, headlamps, and route finding. The group reached the road in a Provo Bench neighborhood at 5:30 a.m.
