Salisbury Crags Rock Climber Rescue

16th June 2014

About this memory

While out walking one evening I stumbled upon this scene: a teenager being rescued by fire crews after attempting to climb Salisbury Crags.

The 16-year-old became stuck halfway up the cliff face and was clinging to rocks as he (not his friends, interestingly) alerted the emergency services on his mobile phone. A single fireman abseiled down the cliff and fixed a harness to the stranded youngster before lowering him to the ground.
