We were called to assist an exhausted walker on the western edge path of Kinder Scout. With only a rough location, both Kinder MRT and Buxton MRT were deployed by the Peak District Mountain Rescue Organisation (PDMRO) Duty Controller. Shortly afterwards a passing walker was able to assist the exhausted walker and gave us a grid reference. Buxton MRT were then stood down.
The good samaritan was able to warm and feed the walker, then lead him southwards to Edale Cross. Here he was met by one of our hill parties and a team vehicle, so we could bring him down to our base in Hayfield.
Many thanks to the passing walker for his help and we hope you were able to continue and enjoy your own walk.
