  A member of a group took a tumble up on the Climber's Traverse on Bowfell,  sustaining facial injuries. With our team already committed to the previous, serious incident, along with members of Kendal MRT, and  a Duddon MRT member who made the mistake of being at our base when it kicked off, it was necessary to request Coniston MRT to assist. This they did, and evacuated the man to the valley floor

A young woman took a 40 metres fall from Gimmer Crag. She sustained serious multiple injuries. Weather conditions were very poor, and the chances of getting a vital helicopter evacuation looked unlikely. Two others sustained minor injuries. The seriously injured woman was stabilised by team members and lowered further down the crag, from where she was picked up by the Rescue 912 in a stunning and brave bit of flying in very poor conditions. If anyone had any doubts that the replacement for their much-loved Sea King would fail to deliver, then today proved them groundless..

15 team members for 6.5 hours, plus Kendal, Wasdale, Duddon, and RAF MRTs
