2020-44: Thor's Cave

Four Teenagers rescued from Thor's Cave

Posted by on

The team were called out to Thor's Cave just before 5pm on Tuesday 18th August. Four teenagers had become cragfast* on a ledge down the steep side of the west exit to the cave. 

The Male and three Females were cold and muddy but otherwise unhurt. They were assisted back into the cave with a protective top rope, before being helped back out of the main entrance/exit to the cave.

This is the third similar incident since lockdown with persons stuck on this route.

Fifteen Team members were in attendance, vehicles and kit returned to base, wiped down (COVID protocols), re-packed and made ready for the next callout.
