Hall’s Fell, Blencathra (75)
Callout Time: 3:56 pm
Agencies Involved: Keswick MRT, NWAS
After completing the tricky rocky sections of the Hall’s Fell descent off Blencathra, a walker unfortunately tripped on a more benign section of path and heard a ‘snap’ in her right ankle. A family member made the call for help and the team, having just returned to base from the previous call-out, made their way up the ridge to the casualty. After some strong pain relief the ankle was reduced (re-aligned) and splinted. The woman was then stretchered down the hill to a waiting ambulance.
