An injured climber was airlifted after dark from Stoney Point in Chatsworth by a Los Angeles Fire Department helicopter Wednesday.
The climber was transferred to a Fire Station 96 ambulance and taken to Northridge Hospital, according to an LAFD radio broadcast.
At least four helicopters began circling Stoney Point at about 9 p.m. shining their powerful searchlights at the rugged terrain. One copter departed, and while two others shined their lights at the peak, a third dropped a rescue line, according to Susan Eskander at nearby Trail's End Ranch.
The last helicopter departed the scene at about 11:15 p.m. There were no details available as to the climber's injuries.
