Endurance athlete rescued after becoming lost


Penrith Mountain Rescue Team were called to assist a 51-year-old female who was taking part in the Spine Endurance Race.  

She had become disorientated in the dark and was found on a ledge at High Cup Nick, very cold, tired and wet. 

A spokesperson said:

"Once we had located the casualty, she was made secure, sheltered from the cold and strong winds and re-warmed. The casualty was then packaged into a stretcher and lowered off the steep ground and carried out along the valley floor. 

"A huge thank you goes out to Raymond from Harbour Flatt who kindly drove his Gator into the valley to meet the stretcher and help with the casualty evacuation, plus all our bags!" 

"The casualty was taken to the Spine rest station at Dufton village hall. 

"A big thank you for the hot drinks and bacon butties provided by the Post Box Pantry cafe in Dufton.

"Finally, thank you to Kirkby Stephen MRT for their assistance. Both Teams worked together really well and we couldn't have done it without them."
