The Team were alerted by both the Ambulance service and the Police after reports of someone having fallen near Armathwaite crags.

Community First Responders and a Paramedic were able to access the casualty quickly but the rescue Team was needed for the extraction back on to safe ground.

A twin rope hauling system was used to bring the casualty on a Team stretcher up the steep ground to a Team vehicle for a short drive to the waiting ambulance.

Huge thank you to North West Ambulance Service.
