We were called to a fallen climber to Cooks Crag near Captain Cooks Monument at Gribdale.
A Newcastle lady had fallen around 3 metres whilst scrambling on the crags with two friends. We managed to drive in our Landrover ambulance to the Monument before walking to the incident site with first aid equipment. She was treated at the scene by team members before being carried on a mountain rescue stretcher 400 metres to the nearest forestry track and our second Land rover.
The lady was then transported to the car pack at Gribdale and taken to James Cooke Hospital for treatment.
14 team members were involved for an hour and a half.
Applications can be made to join the team in a support role (Operational Support) or as a hill going (Search and Rescue) member.
Applications for either role can be made at any time. Intakes for Operational Support members occur at various times of the year. There is one annual intake for Search and Rescue normally each September.Join Now
