Preparations for this afternoons team BBQ were interrupted when the team were paged to a climber reported stuck near to the Western Mile Markers. Access was through Belle Vue Farm southwards to the cliff top. The vehicle team stayed on top (red marker) to provide words of encouragement to the forward team who deployed down to the scene on foot.
Rescue helicopter 106 was scrambled from Portland and lifted the climber with a shoulder injury to Dorchester hospital.
The team remained on scene to assist the climber's partner.
With the BBQ lit the IRT were then tasked to a report of persons stuck on Ballard, despite a good search no one was located.
Perhaps this week I'll get Coastguard Oscar to do some blogs on access to the Cliff areas?!
