According to a social media post from the NCFD, their firefighters, along with the Natrona County Sheriff's Office and a Wyoming Medical Center (Banner Health) ambulance arrived on scene Wednesday morning.

The post stated that upon arrival, an NCSO deputy made contact with the woman, who was stuck on the edge of a 30 foot drop off, on the north side of Independence Rock. She was uninjured; she just wanted to get down.

Crew members gathered all of the necessary equipment, including ropes and medical implements, and made their way to the area.

"Emergency personnel climbed to the area above the patient, created a lowering/raising rope system and dropped down to the patient," the post stated. "The patient was placed into a harness, helmet and gloves and raised back up the edge safely to the rest of the rescue crew. The patient was assisted down to the bottom of the rock via alternate route and checked out by medical personnel."
