/ Ben Lui Incident
We are both concerned about how the lady is doing or what happened after, assuming she is ok as there are no news articles etc for this date. If anybody has any information on this it would be greatly appreciated as we are both keen to know if she is ok.
um... you didnt go down and offer to provide assistance...?
It obviously happens a lot round there:
Hope the lady concerned makes a full recovery and the OP hears some good news to put his mind at rest.
I was in the gully at the same time as the OP and started climbing down after the woman had fallen past us to see if there was anything I could do to help. A few seconds later we heard people shouting that she was okay, so while her partner went down to get to her, everyone else who was already quite far up the gully (including myself and the OP) continued to the top.
Anyway, I spoke to some guys in the car park later that day who said they were near where she came to a stop and attended to her. They said she was bruised and possibly a foot/ankle injury which would explain the MR helicopter. However, that's just what they told me, so not sure how accurate that is. Would be good to get a confirmation that she's doing okay though!
fair play, sounds like the right call, as noted going down could be hazardous too. hope all those involved are ok; having been present at an accident at stanage a couple of years back, on clearly much less serious ground, it was a sobering experience...
It was my climbing partner who fell. She is battered and bruised, has badly sprained both her ankles and was very shaken, but other than that is fine. She was ready to leave hospital by the time I got to Fort William.
Many, many thanks to all who gave and offered assistance, to Killin MRT and RAF137, and especially to those who reached her first. It was all very much appreciated. As mentioned above, a very sobering experience and not one either of us will soon forget.
Glad to hear she's doing (relatively) okay considering how far she fell. Wishing her a speedy recovery!
Hopefully she will be up in the hills as injuries heal and she is not put off climbing.
