CLEAR CREEK COUNTY, Colo. -- Members of the Alpine Rescue Team, the Rocky Mountain Rescue Group, Flight for Life Colorado, and Colorado Army National Guardsmen from the 2nd Battalion, 135th General Support Aviation worked in tandem to rescue injured climbers in the Indian Peaks mountain range in Clear Creek County, Colo. Sept. 7, 2012. Sterling Roop, one of a group of three experienced mountain climbers, suffered head trauma and other injuries after falling approximately 40 to 50 feet during his ascent of Mount Bancroft.
