Piers Gill, Scafell Pike – Sun 16th Mar 2008 – Alert

Whilst out on a training day the team found a crag fast sheep, well down one of the gulleys. The sheep had been down the gulley for some time (all the vegetation around it had been eaten) and there was no way it could ascend. It was stuck with a 100 foot drop into the Piers Gill bottom. Two team members were lowered in, secured the sheep, and all were safely hauled out. A good training situation plus a valuable sheep saved. see photos here and short video here
