The team was called out at 13:12 to assist a climber who had taken a considerable lead fall whilst climbing Tophet Wall, on Great Gable. He suffered a serious leg injury but fortunately for him there was some other climbers in the area who initially lowered him off the crag and gave initial first aid (well done lads). Rescue 999 attended along with the team who then provided further treatment. We packaged the casualty and he was flown to Carlisle hospital for further treatment. Thank you to all involved.

Incident started at 13:14 and ended at 17:30 making 4.3 hrs in total. There were 16 Wasdale team members involved and the incident occured at NY 2105 0996 (altitude 695 m). Total rescuer hours: 69
