- Full Callout — Injured & Medical
- Lingmell Col, Scafell Pike
- Leg Injury
Two interesting postscripts – firstly the incident location was only a stones throw from the previous callout, the second was when the team leader asked over the phone before the team arrived for a check to be made on blood flow to the foot. The party were asked to press on the toe nail and check capillary refill. This is where the bed of the nail goes white and then quickly becomes refreshed with blood and goes a healthy pink. They removed the boot and advised there was a slight problem… …the lady had painted toe nails…
It was also good to see that the group were very well equipped for the hill and were in good spirits when the team arrived, they were already warm inside their own bivvy shelter.
Incident started at 18:15 and ended at 23:00 making 4.8 hrs in total. There were 21 Wasdale team members involved and the incident occured at NY 21096 07676 (altitude 776 m). Total rescuer hours: 101
