Sty Head Pass (58)
Callout Date: 03/08/2021
Callout Time: 6:31 pm
Agencies Involved: Keswick MRT
A couple had climbed Scafell Pike from Seathwaite with their two sons when part way down on the descent the lady went over on her ankle and could no longer walk unassisted. With help from her husband they valiantly made their way down as far as the Sty Head stretcher box where they made a call for assistance. Keswick sent two vehicles with team members who made their way up to Sty Head Pass. The lady was assessed, analgesia given and her ankle splinted and bandaged before starting the long stretcher carry down to Seathwaite. It was a beautiful evening to be out in the fells and to everyone’s relief we all made it down before dark. The couple then made their own arrangements to go to hospital for further checks.
15 team members – 4 hours 29 minutes
