Cragfast climbers rescued from knife edge drop of 3,000ft

Last week two climbers were rescued from a knife edge drop of  nearly 3,000ft after they became cragfast.

The climbers had been attempting to climb Cuillin Ridge on the Isle of Skye when they made a call to Police Scotland just after 5.30pm on 5 April reporting they were just shy of the summit but could not move up or down.

The Stornoway Coastguard helicopter was sent to the scene and winched the two male climbers into the care of the Skye Mountain Rescue Team.

They were both safe and well and required no medical treatment.
