Climbers rescued from Rosea 24-Dec-2010 At 8:07:23 AM rolsen1
Climbers rescued after eight hours trapped on mountain at Halls Gap

TWO climbers have been rescued after spending a nightmare eight hours stranded on a cliff at Halls Gap overnight.

The husband and wife were climbing on Mount Rosea when they became stuck on Mount Rosea early yesterday evening.

Unable to climb or descend, the pair phoned police from a mobile phone about 6.15pm.

Search and rescue teams had to rapel down the cliff to reach the climbers, finally reaching them about 2.30am.

They were then guided to safety.

The pair, who were not hurt, are now recovering after the long and cold ordeal.
