Blue Mountains Police Rescue used drone technology to help rescue a rock climber at Katoomba on Sunday morning, July 28.
About 11am, Blue Mountains Police Rescue was called to Castle Head Katoomba on the Narrow Neck plateau after the climber had become stuck on a cliff more than 100m in height.
"Initially it was unclear as to his location so rescue operators deployed one of the squads drones in an attempt to locate him," the Blue Mountains Police Rescue stated on its Facebook account.
"The climber was located a short time later by the drone and the best way to access him was worked out."
A rescue operator made his way down to the climber and assisted him back up to the cliff top.
"Blue Mountains Police Rescue has three drones and commercially licensed drone (RPAS) pilots," it stated.
