Gibraltar Rock Climbing

Perez de Tudela and his team start their climb of Giblraltar’s northeast wall in the early hours of the morning. Nearing the summit, a stone fall put a stop to Perez’s attempt. However, one of his team continues and reaches the top. Perez suffers a broken leg and is finally rescued by a British naval helicopter after hanging on the rock face for twenty-five hours!
