His leg is 400m from the marked trail, but where is the rest of his body?

Sorry, couldn’t resist the usual “Is that even English” comment…

not a job for a ‘copter?

Much cheaper to use a 4wd I suppose.

I doubt anywhere in the entire mountain is 400m from a marked trail. Do you suppose they mean 400m from a trail suitable for a four wheel vehicle?
