Carrock Fell (68)

Incident No: 68

Call Out Date: 02/08/2018

Callout Time: 6:16 pm

Location: Carrock Fell

Agency Involved: Keswick MRT, NWAS

Incident Details:

A father and son attempted to walk a direct route up the steep front face (bracken and scree) of Carrock Fell above the road and became crag fast. Thursday's are practice nights for the team and the planned activity this evening was a crag pick off so the callout was timely and appropriate! A small team attended and made their way up to the pair who were located on a ledge below the steep rock of the upper part of Carrock. After building rock anchors the two were lowered off to less steep ground where they were short-roped the rest of the way down.

13 team members - 2 hours 12 mins
