A base jumper stuck on the face of The Chief in Squamish is recovering with a broken leg, RCMP said Thursday.

The 27-year-old man was stranded on the mountain for a few hours on Wednesday after he jumped with a packed parachute and a gust of wind spun him around. The man was slammed back into the face of the mountain and managed to hold on to a ledge.

He then cut the chute loose and used a radio to call a fellow base jumper for help.

He was rescued by Squamish Search and Rescue.
