A man and his dog were rescued after getting stuck on an ‘intimidating’ route on a Lake District fell.

Keswick Mountain Rescue Team was called out at 3.50pm on Wednesday when the 28-year-old called for help after getting cragfast on Slape Crag on Barf.

Ten volunteers from the team were involved in the operation to bring the man and animal to safety.

A team spokesperson said: “This was the usual place, the awkward step on the Wainwright route, which many people have found intimidating.

“A small team was despatched to assist him and his dog off the hill.”

The rescue lasted just over 1¼ hours.
