Two females attempting to tackle the front face of Barf via the white-painted Bishop Rock arrived below Slape Crag, a notorious steep and slippery short climb with a big drop. Not liking the look of it and unsure of a safe alternative or descent they called for Mountain Rescue help. Two team members who were close by went direct to make contact with the two women, they were followed shortly after by more team members with equipment should it be required. With harnesses and helmets fitted the two were walked off back down the way they had come up past the Bishop.
