BAR HARBOR — Acadia National Park officials say a climber survived a 60-foot fall on a trail known for its sheer cliffs.

Park officials say a 26-year-old Portland man was hiking on Precipice Trail on Monday when he reached up to grab a rock to hoist himself up and the rock gave way. The man tumbled down, breaking bones and suffering lacerations. The injuries were not considered life-threatening.

Heavy fog made rescue by helicopter impossible, so responders carried the man off the cliff to the Loop Road, where a waiting ambulance transported him to Mount Desert Island Hospital.

Park officials declined to disclose the climber’s name.
