A 35-year-old male sustained suspected serious multiple injuries when he took a leader fall. He was treated, stabilised and evacuated from the crag by team members, then airlifted to hospital in Newcastle by RAF Boulmer.
The occupants of a car phoned the Police when they became stuck on an ice-covered Wrynose Pass. They were concerned that they couldn't get down. A vehicle was dispatched to assist them, but we couldn't find them. It transpired that they had got down the pass by themselves and were making their way to Lancaster. We returned home.
We were requested by the Police to go and recover two people who had got their car stuck on Wrynose Pass in icy conditions. They claimed not to have seen the 'Road Closed' signs and became stuck on ice near the top. The recovery was hampered by a number of other cars abandoned and blocking the road.
