A walker sustained an ankle injury on the summit of Great Gable. Due to the risk of  team members being injured because of the high winds, a coastguard helicopter was requested. We are very thankful that they attended, and took the casualty to hospital. Our team members did not need to go on the high fell and returned intact! The 2 friends of the casualty were taken to Borrowdale by helicopter and met by a Keswick team member, thankyou.

Incident started at 13:37 and ended at 17:39 making 4 hrs in total. There were 20 Wasdale team members involved and the incident occured at NY 211 103. Total rescuer hours: 80
