We were tasked to help an unwell female on the Pennine Way around Jacob’s Ladder. What three words put her location between Edale Cross and the top of Jacob’s Ladder. This proved to be accurate. Our fast response party arrived at the location and found the lady suffering from a medical condition. She was feeling very weak and unwell, so we put her on our stretcher and took her to our Landrovers at Edale Cross. We drove her back to base. She recovered sufficiently to be driven home by a relative.
