A 64 year old man collapsed when he tried to stand up after a rest at the top of the climb up Skelgill Bank on Catbells. The man’s wife called 999 and asked for Mountain Rescue assistance. One Landrover with 5 team members left base with other team members going direct. The casualty was assessed by team medics before being walked down to an awaiting ambulance for further assessment. Many thanks to the ice cream van for the kind donation of very welcome 99s!
