We were called by Police about a walker who’d twisted their ankle whilst descending the Corridor Route on Scafell Pike, near to Skew Gill and could no longer walk. They were accompanied by Teesdale & Weardale members who provided initial medical treatment. Once on scene the limb was splinted then the casualty loaded onto the stretcher for the journey down to Burnthwaite. With a potentially long carry we were also joined by our colleagues from the Duddon and Furness team who carried the casualty back to the waiting vehicles.

Incident started at 07:15 and ended at 12:00 making 4.8 hrs in total. There were 17 Wasdale team members involved and the incident occured at NY 221 089 (altitude 567 m). Total rescuer hours: 82
