Heroes in Action

Wednesday, 9 April 2008

Here are some of my favourite people in action – the Wasdale Mountain Rescue Team rescuing a fellwalker cragfast in a gully above Wasdale. Just to show, if you didn’t already, that the Lake District isn’t only, or even mainly, about daffodils and tea and biscuits by the lake!

Being cragfast is the great Lakeland nightmare; stuck on a steep rocky slope, unable to move in any direction. Brrr!

These guys do this for nothing, you know. They need all the support they can get.
