The team were called to help a lady and her husband after the lady had injured her ankle whilst descending off Scafell Pike. The pair had attempted to self rescue, however, due to the poor ground conditions and the deteriorating light they felt it was in everybody’s best interest to ask for help. Both Wasdale and Duddon & Furness team members were immediately deployed to the location where initial medical care was provided and the lady was then carefully stretchered off back down to the valley bottom. Thank you for the support from Duddon & Furness Mountain Rescue Team.

Incident started at 14:53 and ended at 20:29 making 5.6 hrs in total. There were 15 Wasdale team members involved and the incident occured at NY 207 075. Total rescuer hours: 84
