Ice climber fair after Crawford Notch fall

HART’S LOCATION, N.H. (AP) — The condition of a New Hampshire ice climber who fell in Crawford Notch State Park in Hart’s Location has been upgraded to fair.

The Department of Fish and Game says 55-year-old Eric Scoville was listed in critical condition after he was transferred to Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon following the Saturday afternoon fall.

Officials say Scoville, of New Boston, fell about 70 feet while climbing alone and un-roped at Frankenstein Cliffs.

Other climbers assessed Scoville’s injuries, called for emergency response and carried him in a litter about a half mile to a parking area where he was taken by ambulance to Memorial Hospital in North Conway. He was flown from there to Dartmouth Hitchcock.

On Monday, hospital officials told WMWV-FM that Scoville was in fair condition.
