A walker (m, 58) starting the descent from Little Ingleborough to Gaping Gill tripped on a protruding rock. In falling ahead with arms outstretched, he suffered a suspected shoulder dislocation. The strolling group chief rang 999, requested for ‘police’, then ‘mountain rescue’ and gave an correct ten-figure grid reference. He supplied gentle ache aid and fixed the injured arm within the least painful place earlier than the group continued gently in direction of Gaping Gill. A little bit wanting there, they had been met by rescue group members in CRO 4, the Honda Pioneer. This took the injured walker through Newby Cote to CRO Base, in Clapham, the place a YAS street ambulance had simply arrived. Different group members, who had gone as much as Trow Gill by Land Rover in case additional assist was wanted, had been recalled and had been capable of supply some members of the delayed strolling group a raise again to their coach, in Clapham.
