Well over the few days before christmas, there were two call outs, one to rescue some totally ill equipped walkers who thought tracksuit and trainers was ideal for winter mountaineering (See BBc report). Suffice to say neither the RAF, rescue team or A&E were impressed by them. Another incident early on wednesday required the team to mobilise.
I was sat in watching some trash on the telly on christmas day, too many beers down to do anything when the pager went off. Fortunately whoever was late for christmas dinner was going to be in a lot of trouble from his wife but didn’t actually need rescuing. I know Ray Wood and Tim Neill also headed out on Christmas day. I hope they got some decent climbing in as the weather has warmed up, however looks like over the next couple of days a cold front coming up from the continent may bring back some decent conditions.
