POWELL CO., Ky. (WKYT) - A man is safe after a daring rescue in Powell County. Powell County Search and Rescue say the hiker, Christian Jones, got lost in the Red River Gorge Tuesday night. (Powell County Search & Rescue Facebook)
They say he had bush-whacked up a cliff and got stranded. It was dark, cold and rainy. Rescue crews say those conditions added danger to the mission. They say Jones used his last one-percent battery on his phone to turn on his flash-light, allowing rescuers to find him. Powell County Search and Rescue says it was one of the most dangerous rescues they have attempted.

jamiekaj: I'm new to climbing (been in the gym for about a month now) and am looking for partners to get me to the gorge and back (from Lexington) / teach me a few things. I have gear (minus a rope) and could provide pizza, gas, and beer.
