The team was called out at 12:55 with reports of a climber falling around 20 meters from Great Gable. At first the information regarding the location and the injuries sustained was thin so we called for helicopter support given that the injuries could have been extensive. As further information become available it was established that the incident was in the Cockermouth MRT area. Both teams responded and we waited in Wasdale incase backup was required.

Incident started at 12:55 and ended at 17:00 making 4.1 hrs in total. There were 16 Wasdale team members involved. Total rescuer hours: 66
