Sharp Edge, Blencathra (80)

Callout Date: 22/08/2022
Callout Time: 4:54 pm
Agencies Involved: Keswick MRT

With Sharp Edge cloaked in mist a couple tried to avoid the notorious wet slippy rock by attempting a low level traverse. However having reached the gnarly Foule Crag area they became crag fast and called for assistance. A small Keswick MR team made their way to the top of Sharp Edge and after eventually locating them in the mist, a rope system was set up and the couple brought 50m back up to ridge level. From here they scrambled to safe ground at the top protected by a rope.

9 team members – 4 hours 36 minutes
