Barf (5)

Callout Date: 15/04/2021
Callout Time: 4:34 pm
Agencies Involved: Keswick MRT

A man was ascending Barf by one of the original, and particularly unpleasant, paths to the summit. Having made some progress he ended up in a precarious position in loose steep scree. Deciding not to attempt going up into steeper terrain and concerned about descending he made a wise decision to call for help. Several team members attended and were able to rope assist him down to the base of the hill.

As this is an accident black spot a much better and safer way up is on the path beside Beckstones Gill.

10 team members – 1 hour 46 minutes
