The patient was successfully treated on scene by a medic, and removed by the AMS helicopter. A rescue team was preparing to leave CT should they have been needed, but were stood down when it was clear they were not. I am not aware of the patient's condition, or circumstances of their injury, although it did not sound like it was a climber.

What the hell was a non climber doing hanging from a rope on the mountain near Steenbras Dam?
As far as I know, the rock out that way is chossy to say the least and is it not on private land thats not easy to get to.
Sounds like a royal stuff up to me...
