Dow Crag 22nd June 2014 13:53hrs 20/2014


The weather had turned cloudy but was still warm with sunny intervals and a light breeze on the tops.

We were asked to help a female climber who, because of her inexperience, had become crag fast on a ledge below Dow Crag. She was suffering a panic attack. Fortunately she did have two other climbers with her and she was unhurt.

However, before the team had left the base, Cumbria Police asked us to stand down as the lady had been talked down to safety.

12 Team members responded to this call out which only took less than 15 minutes.
