On 7/14/18 at approximately 13:18 PM the Skamania County Sheriff’s Office received information of two subjects trapped on a rock within Lave Canyon. This area is northeast of Cougar, Washington. A Forest Service LEO responded and requested assistance in getting the hikers back onto the river bank. The Volcano Rescue Team responded, after completing a mission on Mt. St Helens and is currently assisting in that rescue. There are no reported injuries and the involved hikers have not yet been identified.
