As we were deploying to the previous incident, we received a report of a couple of ladies who had been on a walk on the Kinder plateau, but were now unable to continue. A medical condition, combined with a minor ankle injury was preventing one of them from walking any further. Fortunately their position was near Swinesback at the top of Jacobs Ladder, which is close to the Edale Cross track. Some challenging off-road driving allowed us to get a team Land Rover to within a few hundred meters of their location. With the assistance of one of our hill parties, she was able to be helped to the vehicle. Once back at base, the hill party was able to be re-deployed to catch up with the rest of the team on the carry off for the previous incident, which was still on-going.
