According to the MCSA KZN Section rescue team’s convenor, Gavin Raubenheimer, the man’s friends contacted the search and rescue team, who raced to the scene with a doctor and an advanced life support paramedic.

During a high-angle rescue, the patient was brought up the same climb he had fallen down and was carried to an ambulance.
