I'm not of the parish anymore, having moved over Summer but there's been a bit of chatter on Facebook about an accident at the Torrs which resulted in an air ambulance evacuation for the casualty. No one seems to know anything more on the matter, but I hope whoever it is makes a full recovery.
it sounds like one of the posters ( a climber) had previously had a word with some youths who hadn't got much idea and was thinking her words had fallen on deaf ears. This bit of speculation seems unresolved, though.
i wasn’t with the party but present at the crag. Alcove crack / Pro failure ( maybe due to the ever loosening blocks on that route?) climber was stable and conscious when the ambulance took them away; 8 meters to the deck. Wishing the best for them and a speedy recovery.
