Incident Report #8 1975

An 18 year old boy from Pendlebury, Manchester, slipped and fell 30 feet on to a ledge and became crag fast. The team lowered him 60 feet to safety, and although he was uninjured, he was treated for shock. Footnote: This young man was very lucky because he could have fallen another 60-100 feet but for the ledge. The weather was cold, fairly clear, with occasional snow showers.
