Tribute Wall accident 11/09/2018 10-Sep-2018 At 5:05:18 PM kieranl
Climber was rescued from base of Lower Tribute Wall yesterday. Apperently fell as he was trying to clip.

Short but hard carry out to a point where the chopper was able to pick him up just as full darkness fell. Was starting to look like we'd be camping there overnight. I think 4 paramedics, 1 police officer, 9 SES and 2 or 3 climbers did the grunt work.

That's 4 rescues from Stapylton area in last 12 months :

2 boulderers (kindergarten, legoland), 1 walker (Hollow Mountain) and the climber yesterday.

All of these were moved by emergency services on ground to points where helicopter evac was possible as getting a stretcher out by hand from many locations at Stapylton is pretty arduous. Check your ambulance cover!
