I was up there just minutes after the hiker fell. I'm kind of a risk taker myself and got pretty close to the edge and when I found out someone fell I tried to look but apparently he was much farther than I could see over. A woman told me that he was trying to climb down to a ledge just 20 feet below the lookout, which you can easily see and think you may be able to climb down to. When the rescuers got there, to the lookout, at 1:25pm they kicked us off the trail. The rescuers were calling out to him and from that point as I walked back down the trail with my girlfriend we counted probably another dozen or so rescuers, including two geared up rock climbers, heading up the trail.
