After a good outcome to our overnight search, we were stood down and making our way off the hill. However, our search dog Jess clearly hadn’t heard the radio messages and alerted us to a lone walker at the top of Piers Gill. The walker had suffered from a fall, was carrying a minor injury, and struggling to continue. Team members provided assistance and helped the walker back to Wasdale.
It is somewhat unusual to find our own job, but he was very grateful to see red jackets emerge from the mist in his hour of need!

Incident started at 11:30 and ended at 13:06 making 1.6 hrs in total. There were 15 Wasdale team members involved and the incident occured at NY 214079. Total rescuer hours: 24
