Mountain Rescuers were called out yesterday (April 18th) after a climbed became stuck on Fleetwith Pike.

The Cockermouth team were alerted after a man became cragfast on the fell, above Maggie's Cross.

Members of the team were able to help him get out of his difficulty and walk down to Gatesgarth, a spokesman confirmed.

Those who are heading for the hills with a climbing rope may need to ensure they are fully equipped, with other useful items including the right climbing shoes and also correct clothing such as waterproofs when the weather takes a turn for the worse.

Climbers may also ensure they do not take on cliffs and crags that are beyond their current abilities.

Cockermouth Mountain Rescue covers the north-east of the national park and previous incidents this year included a woman who suffered a head injury when she slipped while climbing from Honister to Haystacks, as well as a man injuring his ankle above Black Sail at the upper end of Ennerdale.
