Great Calva (58)

Callout Time: 5:09 pm
Agencies Involved: Keswick MRT

A couple were walking on Great Calva, at the back of Skiddaw, when one slipped on steep ground and injured their ankle. The partner made his way to Skiddaw House to get phone reception where he called 999 and asked for Mountain Rescue assistance. Without an exact location for the casualty two team Landrovers were sent to access the area from different points. Once an accurate location could be made, both trucks made their way to Mosedale where team members were able to quickly access the casualty. An assessment was made of her injury and although no immediate treatment was required, her ankle could not bear weight. She was therefore stretchered back to down to her own vehicle so that she could be transported for further assessment at Carlisle Infirmary.
