Rescue – Scugdale, near Swainby

SATURDAY 8TH JUNE 2024 (1310 HOURS)

Calls from North Yorkshire Police and the Yorkshire Ambulance Service (YAS) alerted us to a fallen climber in Scugdale near Swainby. The climber had sustained potentially serious injuries and after treatment by the YAS crew and Team members, we secured him within a vacuum mattress and carried him on a rescue stretcher to the top of the crag. We then transferred him to a Yorkshire Air Ambulance helicopter and gave him our best wishes for his recovery process before he was then flown to hospital.

Eighteen Cleveland MRT members were involved for approximately 2.5-hours before some rejoined the Ardmoors event at Lordstones Country Park (where they had been providing event cover), whilst others returned to Base and/or their homes. They had little time to rest before the next call
