Accident at araps on news Sunday 9/3 10-Mar-2015 At 6:16:30 PM jrc
Exactly as Mike says. The carry out is always harder than you can imagine. You need 6 on the stretcher - and unless they've been redesigned theres no room for more- and they get tired. We had 12 of us carrying a climber all the way down Pharos Gully late 1999 - pre the modern steps; we were wasted at the bottom. I also remember carrying out a chap who had fallen off Nemesis at Frog in 79 - about 6 of us plus 2 ambos & some police; it was upwards and hard work. I had to guide my partner out of frog once after he hit the deck off Iron Mandible; he could walk - slowly, but it was a very long way.

This one last weekend sounds like a very well organised rescue with a lot of cooperation - not what you all set out to do for the weekend but your efforts would have been very much appreciated - lucky it was a weekend with a lot of folk about. I hope the person hurt makes a full recovery - very best wishes.
