The Wasdale and Eskdale valleys hold a number of areas where the team regularly has to attend incidents. These are not just black spots where walkers and climbers come to physical harm but also where the team has to go and search for missing persons.
The incident / callout pages of this website are probably the best indicators and worth a visit but this page aims to focus on those where the team spends most of it’s time. The black spots link back to specific incidents. If you as a walker or climber got into difficulty in a particular area but managed to get yourself down under your own steam then we would be pleased to hear about it. Please remember that the Team’s website exists to highlight the role of mountain rescue, the risks on the hills and as such, aims to help people like yourself and your friends enjoy the mountains safely.
