Sergeant Man

Incident Report #11 2015

A woman fainted and was feeling unwell on the summit of Sergeant Man. The team was called and was on route, along with Kendal MRT when we were notified that she had been picked up by the air ambulance and relocated in the valley bottom, where a road ambulance was waiting. We were able to stand-down and return to base and return to the normal, boring stuff that pervades our lives...

Incident Report #77 2008

A group of 4 reported themselves as unable to find a way off from the Sergeant Man area after having turned back from their route when they encountered a river they could not cross due to high water levels. Unfortunately they returned via a different route, and encountered another river they couldn't cross! Their lack of preparation contributed to their problem. They seemed unaware of the problems that the very heavy rain could cause, had no compass, and as darkness fell it became obvious they had no torches.
