We were called by Cumbria Police about a walker in a party of two whose knee was spasming and so was struggling to keep moving. A full callout was made with the possibility of a stretcher carry. Once again Duddon and Furness MRT provided extra help.
However, the walker managed to keep going slowly until the advance party met up with them in the Hollowstones area. After a discussion it was agreed that a slow and careful descent to Brackenclose was still possible and this was completed without further incident. We wish the walker well.

Incident started at 14:06 and ended at 17:53 making 3.8 hrs in total. There were 15 Wasdale team members involved and the incident occured at NY212078. Total rescuer hours: 57
