A man was reported as suffering a leg injury on the Crinkle Crag ridge. Further questioning of the informant suggested exhaustion rather than an actual injury. The team responded, accompanied by Kendal MRT, since we were rather thinly spread at this stage, due to the previous callout. The casualty was located near Rest Ghyll, and assisted off the hill.
