A young female sustained a lower leg and ankle injury at Sty Head Tarn. Many of the team were already on the hill for a training exercise and thus were able to divert direct to the casualty site. The injury was treated on site and the casualty stretchered off the hill down to Seathwaite in Borrowdale. Keswick MRT was met by Wasdale MRT on the descent to take over the care of the casualty, many thanks to their support. Wasdale MRT then retraced their steps back to Wasdale; unfortunately the training was abandoned for the day.

Incident started at 09:49 and ended at 14:32 making 4.7 hrs in total. There were 20 Wasdale team members involved and the incident occured at NY 220095. Total rescuer hours: 94
