Incident report

Following the report of a climber having fallen from Bachelor’s Climb at Hen Cloud near The Roaches, the team responded with 18 members.   The 28 year old climber had sustained a possible fractured leg in the fall and was being treated by West Midlands Ambulance Service.   An air-ambulance was called but declined to land as darkness and poor weather set in.  The casualty was instead carried by stretcher to Roaches Gate where an ambulance was waiting.
