A large search today involving rescue teams from Cairngorm, Dundonnell, Oban, Skye, Sarda South and Lochaber. Unfortunately still no sign of Rachel and Tim.
A …lot of time spent searching and probing avalanche debris in various locations. Cairngorm had a metal detector. Some of the team climbed Tower Ridge and looked into top of some of climbs on East Flank. The three SARDA dogs covered a lot of ground and supported teams when probing to see if any scent was released.
Ben Nevis stunning today with lots of climber with most of the classic routes getting a lot of traffic.
Rachel’s family have been overwhelmed by the response and the kind thoughts posted from all over the world and are very grateful. They were able to see the effort going into search first hand.
Above are a few pictures from the latest search.
