Upper Eskdale

The team deployed in response to a report of a lady asking for help whom had possibly sustained a foot injury whilst swimming in the Upper Eskdale area. Whilst the team were heading to the reported location, further information was received from the original informant that the party in question had possibly self-rescued back to their own vehicle and gone to Hospital under their own steam. A team member was sent to the original location just to confirm the report and found nobody to be there. The team was stood down from that point and we returned to base.

Should you no longer require assistance from Mountain rescue them please let the team or the police know.


Incident started at 18:19 and ended at 21:02 making 2.7 hrs in total. There were 16 Wasdale team members involved and the incident occured at NY 222027. Total rescuer hours: 43
