Beck Head, Great Gable
Other Agencies

We were alerted by Cumbria Police about a walker who had sustained a leg injury on the Beck Head path on Great Gable. It was not possible to speak to either the informant or the casualty as a storm earlier in the week damaged much of the communications infrastructure in the valley. The team mobilised and met the casualty in the fields at the bottom of Gavel Neese, having hobbled off the hill.
He was assessed, given pain relief and met by friends at the farm. Thanks to Duddon and Furness team for their assistance. We wish the walker a swift recovery.

Incident started at 16:00 and ended at 19:07 making 3.1 hrs in total. There were 8 Wasdale team members involved and the incident occured at NY 195 091. Total rescuer hours: 25
