Rescue on multi-pitch
All was quiet until suddenly, a sharp cry echoed through the air. We froze, knowing what it meant. Someone had fallen. We shouted out J's name, but the only response was an eerie silence. Panic set in as we tried the radio, but there was no answer. Our hearts pounding, we clung to the rope, waiting for any sign of life, but we knew in our bones that something terrible had just occurred.
