A search and rescue operation is underway in the Lime Creek area off U.S. Highway 550, north of Durango, for an injured climber.
Tom Brueckner, with La Plata County Search and Rescue, said a 25-year-old man fell while climbing, injuring his ankle.
The climbing area is off Old Lime Creek Road, about 35 miles, north of Durango, between Coal Bank and Molas passes.
Brueckner said the ankle injury does not appear to be too serious, but requires the man to be lifted out of the area.
