We were called by NWAS about a walker who had tripped on the path descending from Scafell Pike summit and injured their ankle and was no longer able to walk. She was assessed on the scene by team members and the limb splinted, then evacuated by stretcher. Given the length of carry and a second incident which then came in we were joined by our colleagues from the Duddon & Furness Mountain Rescue Team on the carry down. 16 WMRT involved + 11 DFMRT.


Incident started at 15:43 and ended at 22:00 making 6.3 hrs in total. There were 16 Wasdale team members involved and the incident occured at NY 21155 07398 (altitude 894 m). Total rescuer hours: 101
