Incident 58/2012 – Sep 15 Sat 22.26 Simpson Pot, North Yorkshire – Cave Rescue

A caver (m, 52) was reported overdue on a solo pull-through trip down Simpson Pot. CRO teams searched Kingsdale Master Cave to the Great Aven, and also descended the pot. The missing caver was found safe and well at the bottom of The Pit, having abseiled down the ‘blind’ shaft some eight hours earlier and pulled the rope down before realising his mistake. He was accompanied back out to the surface.

Volunteer hours: 65
