We were called by Police about a walker who had slipped whilst descending Scafell Pike between the slabs and ‘Pea Boulder’  injuring their ankle. A passing team member was quickly on scene and once other members arrived the injury was assessed and splinted before starting the evacuation back to Wasdale. Given the length of carry we were also joined by our colleagues from Duddon and Furness Team who helped us get the casualty back to Brackenclose.

Incident started at 17:06 and ended at 23:30 making 6.4 hrs in total. There were 14 Wasdale team members involved and the incident occured at NY211 075 (altitude 856 m). Total rescuer hours: 90
