Gard firefighters had to intervene on Sunday night to help a 25-year-old man trapped on a rock climb in the Cevennes near Anduze.
The GRIMP team arrived at 7:30 pm, and successfully rescued the man at 1am on Monday morning.
The civil security helicopter was unable to complete its mission due to adverse weather conditions.
After 5 hours of perilous rescue attempts, the man was saved and taken to the hospital at Ales.
