Shepherd’s Crag (49)

Callout Time: 11:58 am
Agencies Involved: Keswick MRT

A woman and her dog found themselves stuck on a ledge after following the wrong path at Shepherd’s Crag in the Borrowdale Valley. Both were uninjured but as they were unable to continue on or down-climb the way they had come, the woman wisely decided to call Mountain Rescue. ┬áThe team helped the woman to walk off using a back-up safety line on the steeper sections, while her dog was assisted close behind. Once safely back at the road they both decided to return to their nearby accommodation for rest and recovery.
