On the descent from Ingleborough towards Gaping Gill, a walker (f, 59) slipped and fell forward, sustaining a facial injury. Although originally reported to have lost consciousness, briefly, and possibly having a hip injury, neither may have been the case, as she recovered before CRO team members arrived. Although a little shaky, she was able to stand and begin walking down to meet the team’s ‘hasty party’. After assessment by a team doctor, she was able to walk unsupported and was escorted down to the team vehicles, waiting below Trow Gill. Back in Clapham, she was handed over to YAS paramedics for the journey to hospital.
