In their initial investigation, fire officials said the man was climbing a tree, fell and couldn't get out of the ravine.

Firefighters did a low-angle rope rescue because they said the trail was too tough.

Officials said the man is in stable condition and is expected to fully recover. Watch raw video from Chopper 7 over the scene below.
