A teenage male became separated from his family as he proceeded ahead of them while descending to Stake Pass from Mart Crag Moor. They searched the area around Stake Pass, then called the team.

A climber was hit by a large falling rock while descending from a route. He sustained serious multiple injuries. His companion raised the alarm.
In the complex ground of the crag and the gloom of dusk, it took us a while to locate them. Team members were lifted to the crag by Coastguard Rescue 199. Belays were established and they were lowered to the climber and his condition was stabilised. He was then lowered further down the crag to a point where the helicopter could reach them again to winch the injured man aboard. He was flown to a major trauma centre for treatment.
