The Team Leader initiated a Full Callout for the team when a walker was struggling to walk off Scafell Pike after sustaining a painful knee injury. He tried to continue to walk down, but unfortunately could not carry on. We are grateful once again to our friends from Duddon and Furness MRT who assisted us with the stretcher carry from the Hollowstones area. Once safely down to Brackenclose he made his own way out of the valley with advice to get further medical checks at hospital. We wish him a speedy recovery.

Incident started at 16:15 and ended at 20:17 making 4 hrs in total. There were 8 Wasdale team members involved and the incident occured at NY 205 074. Total rescuer hours: 32
