Topic - Accident on High Level Traverse, Pillar, 27 Oct 2012

summitjunkie - on 30 Oct 2012
Just a quick shoutout and immense thank you to the rescue services involved in recovering my injured friend, Andy, from the High Level (Climbers/Shamrock) Traverse between Pillar Rock and Looking Stead on Saturday evening.

Cockermouth MRT arrived rapidly and exhibited great professionalism and kindness throughout. Especial thanks to Chris and Ian who ferried us to Black Sail after. The crew of the Sea King from RAF Valley were also excellent. The pilot must have massive cojones to have hovered continuously for almost thirty minutes so close to the rockface as Andy was prepped whilst a sleet filled hoolie was blowing and gusting at 40mph.

Additional thanks to Martin and Suzy at the Black Sail YH for kindly pressing mugs of tea into our hands and finding us beds at such short notice.
