Two abseilers left stranded without right equipment


By Chanel September

Two frightened abseilers unable to climb out of the Wynberg Cave were pulled out by rescuers on Sunday night.

Three women and two men climbed the Constantia Nek on Sunday and abseiled down into the Wynberg cave.

Rescue manager Kevin Tromp said that they received a call at 7:15pm and were on the scene by 8:30pm and had everyone out of the cave by 9:30pm.


No one was injured. According to the Cape Times the abseilers did not have the gear needed to pull themselves out, leaving the two stranded in the cave.
