Two friends set off to climb Little Chamonix at Shepherds Crag. The leader fell about 6 metres off the first pitch and sustained injuries to his leg.¬†Five team members set off from base to assess the casualty. A local doctor who happened to be in Keswick joined four further team members in a second vehicle. This allowed the Team’s doctor, who had come to the base, to return to his surgery patients. The injury was treated as a suspected limb fracture and pain relief was provided. The casualty was then stretchered the short distance to the road and then dispatched to hospital.

11 team members – 2 hours
