For a number of years we have had concerns on how best to recover a casualty from the bowl below Falling Foss.

Following team members attending the recent Mountain Rescue Gathering in Aviemore and specifically a practical workshop on the Tyrollean Traverse we thought we would try that technique out.

Team members assembled at the beauty spot one Sunday morning, the pictures below tell the story of the day.

To quote our training officer “Excellent trial of new skills and new techniques allowing us to more easily and safely access the bottom of Falling Foss’.

Saving lives in wild and remote places.
