Climbers rescued Margarine Ridge Mt Hay 6.11.11 6-Nov-2011 At 5:15:22 PM SteveH
Police report of a helicopter rescue off Margarine Ridge, Mt Hay, this morning after an unplanned bivvy. Well done rescuers, and glad the climbers are ok...

"Two climbers were rescued from the Blue Mountains after spending the night in bushland near Mount Hay.

The climbers used a mobile phone to call Triple Zero (000) about 10.30pm yesterday (Saturday 5 November) when the 30-year-old man reportedly became dehydrated and was unable to continue.

A rescue helicopter located the man, and a 38-year-old woman, about 100m from the top of Margarine Ridge, but due to the landscape was unable to winch them out.

They spent the night in mild conditions until first light when the helicopter returned to the scene and winched the climbers to the top of cliff.

They were met by a ground team of three Police Rescue officers and two Paramedics who treated them at the scene for dehydration, before being walked out of the bush.

The climbers did not require any further medical treatment and itís believed theyíve returned to their homes in Sydney."
