Brown Tongue, Scafell Pike
In the first of three calls in quick succession, we received a call about a walker who had fallen, sustained a knee injury and was unable to bear weight.
A full callout was made with an advance party setting off quickly with warm clothing and shelter. After assessment, it was mutually decided to attempt a slow walk with team members encouraging and supporting closely. Fortunately the walker was able to complete the descent himself to Brackenclose, from where he was given a lift to his car at Wasdale Head. We wish him well for a swift recovery.

Incident started at 17:16 and ended at 21:35 making 4.3 hrs in total. There were 17 Wasdale team members involved and the incident occured at NY200072. Total rescuer hours: 73
