A male walker became exhausted and unable to continue near the summit of Fairfield. Attempts were made to try and talk him down, but these failed and we had to go and get him. Due to the potential for a lengthy stretcher carry, we requested assistance from Kendal MRT. He was actually able to walk with some encouragement and assistance. Nevertheless it was a lengthy rescue.
Make sure you allow enough time to complete your walk and that it is within your capability. Be prepared to change your plan if things aren't going well.
