Dow Crag 27th June 2015 13:45 hrs 27/2015


The weather was sunny with intermittent cloud and warm.

A gentleman on Dow Crag fell whilst climbing the Abrahams Route.  It was reported that he was still attached to the rope.

Whilst the team was being deployed, RAF Leeming Mountain Rescue who were already training in the area, went to the aid of the casualty. An RAF Sea King was also on its way to the incident.  When we arrived on scene we assisted with the evacuation, working closely with the RAF as necessary. Once he was winched safely off the mountain we returned to the land rovers left on the Walna Scar road.

In total 16 team members responded to this call out which took 2 ½ hours.
