'He's lucky': Hiker rescued at Red River Gorge now wants to join the team that helped save him By: Claire Kopsky Posted at 1:35 PM, Aug 05, 2020 and last updated 6:00 PM, Aug 05, 2020
POWELL COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18) — A camper in his late 20s was rescued Tuesday after falling from a steep cliff and becoming stranded on a ledge while collecting firewood on Twin Arch Trail at Red River Gorge.
Cameron Shepard, who came away from the ordeal with only a few minor scrapes, said he's now been inspired to join the team that helped save him.
"He was impressed by us. I was impressed by him. His humor never stopped," Powell County Search and Rescue Instant Command team member Lisa Johnson said. "This gentleman was lucky, we're getting him on our team so we're lucky that it all worked out great. It could have been a devastating night."

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.
