Call Out 406: Higgar Tor

This afternoon the team were requested to assist Edale Mountain Rescue Team with the extraction of a trapped ‘weaseller’ on Higgar Tor. The young person had got their knee well and truly stuck whilst exploring the cracks and crevices between the rocks. 
Whilst some team members headed to base to load the specialist engineering kit on to the team vehicle, others headed straight for Higgar Tor to assist. 
Mountain and cave rescue team members worked together to hammer, chisel and wriggle the casualty free.
Once stretchered back to the road the casualty happily went on his way – none the worse for his experience. 
A great example of teamwork between Mountain and Cave rescue.
