Joint Exercise at Guillemot Ledge

The Swanage and St Albans Teams joined this morning to exercise at Guillemot Ledge , east of Dancing Ledge. The location is tricky as it's an old quarry and is made up of 3 ledges. So the teams took a different approach today.

The Swanage Team set up one side , whilst the St Albans Team the other with 17 Coastguard Rescue Officers and a Senior Coastguard Operations Officer we had enough team members for two set ups.

Both teams set up and got technicians down the cliff. Nick and Steve on cliff edge safety.

View from Kerry as she went down the cliff. A group of climbers look on showing the 35 metre cliff face with tricky over hangs.

Kerry (it's my birthday, but don't tell anyone) takes Chris ( I've just finished my paramedic exams) on an assisted decent - guys it's serious stuff your not meant to enjoy it !
