Black Crag 9th April 2017, 13:06hrs 11/2017


The second warm sunny day in a row meant that many were taking advantage and venturing out into the hills. The Team was contacted by Cumbria Police regarding a gentleman who had fallen near the summit of Black Crag, one of the lower Wainwright hills to the East of Tarn Hows, and was unable to walk.

Two vehicles responded and by use of the extensive track network in that area were able to drive to within about 1/4 mile of the casualty site.  The injured man was splinted and then carried the the North West Air Ambulance helicopter which had flown in to assist, for his onward journey to Furness General Hospital in Barrow.

In total 11 members were involved and the rescue took just under two hours.
