Incident Reports 2007
A 60-year-old man fell and suffered a superficial bang on the head. They also didn't actually know where they where, other than somewhere in the Langdale Pikes area. This was the real problem, and he was due to take medication for epilepsy at 6pm.
A man and a boy became cragfast on a steep, bracken-covered slope after losing the way down from Wansfell. They were from overseas and had a disproportionate fear of the local wildlife, which is much less dangerous and aggressive than they imagined.
A 17-year-old woman was scrambling up the descent gully adjacent to Middlefell Buttress with a group of friends. They encountered rockfall, and one of them was hit on the head. She sustained an open, depressed skull fracture and injuries to her hand and arm.
A party of around 15 had left the summit of Broad Crag to descend to Gt Langdale when they realised that they had left one of their number behind. Most of the party continued their descent back to Langdale, but 4 broke off to look for the missing man. All 5 were reported overdue at around 18.00. Initially Wasdale MRT were contacted
