>"If you think another party needs a rescue, please check with them before calling 000. They may have the situation in hand or have called 000 themselves. Just because a climber is injured doesn’t mean that an ambulance is needed; ask and see if it is needed. Lots of people have hopped or even crawled back to the car and then to hospital. You’ll usually find that people who need a rescue because of illness or injury are in no doubt about it and will be screaming “Help” to attract your attention."

Within limits - About 3 or 4 years ago, there was a party who was stuck out on the top pitch of Tiger wall, that had been there all day in 35 degree heat without any water. The Israeli leader had a fall and broke his ankle, and they decided that they were going to sleep out on the wall and climb the last pitch of grade 10 the next day, leaving their 3 kids (aged 8, 12 and 14) to roam the pines without any adult supervision. They told me they did not want to get rescued because they were worried about the cost, and had things "under control" despite being out all day in 35 degree heat on the dummest part of the mount.....I thought it was fair play to call rescue regardless.
