Mountain Rescue, the Guardia Civil and Civil Protection from Álora were involved in rescuing a climber who got stuck about 120 metres up a sheer cliff wall on the Desfiladero de los Gaitanes in El Chorro.
The 38 year old climber had injured her ankle and was unable to make the descent on her own. Rescue workers scaled the wall and put a splint on the climber’s ankle before bringing her down.
The climber was taken to hospital in Málaga for treatment. The whole rescue operation took two and a half hours.
