Coastguard Rescue Climbers Stuck on 200-Foot Sea Stack

The HM Coastguard rescued two climbers from a 200-foot-high Old Man of Stoer stack in Sutherland, Scotland, on Thursday evening, September 23. The man said in a statement that the Coast Guard said in a statement the harsh weather conditions that high waves “smash the stack and the tide comes in.” Captain Wilmacloud said it was a “potentially life-threatening situation for everyone involved” but they were able to bring the man back to dry ground safely and without injury.
