Whilst taking a photograph of a waterfall, a man slipped into a steep sided gill but fortunately came to rest on a small ledge someway above the stream bed. A couple passing by on the opposite side of the gill were able to speak with the man and called for assistance. As the man was unable to climb out a team member was lowered on a rope. The casualty was fitted with a harness and the two were brought up out of the gill. The man was uninjured and was able to walk with the team to the valley floor.
