We were called by Police about a walk who’d injured their ankle whilst descending the steep bank at the back of Dent on the first section of the Coast to Coast route. They managed to hobble a bit further and then stopped, fortunately for us right by a forest track. The limb was assessed on scene and then the casualty was taken to hospital in a team vehicle.

Incident started at 17:14 and ended at 20:00 making 2.8 hrs in total. There were 17 Wasdale team members involved and the incident occured at NY 049 124 (altitude 140 m). Total rescuer hours: 48
