Yewdale Fells 17th July 2013 16:40hrs (24/2013)


The weather was dry, warm and sunny, with a gentle breeze higher up.

We were called to the assistance of a male walker who had become cragfast after descending a steep gully resulting in him becoming too nervous to ascend or descend the fell at the north east end of the village. The team leader decided to respond with another member, and to stand down the rest of the team. However, should ropes have been necessary then this would have been a full team call-out. The climb to the gentleman was quite arduous due to the gorse and bracken, as well as the steepness. Once he was reached, he was led safely via another route down to Far End.

Due to the terrain and nervousness of this casualty, this call out took 2 hours.
