Incident 78 - Thursday 20th June 2024 19:43hrs. We were called to attend to reports of a collapsed and unconscious walker in the area of Nether Tor on Kinder Scout.

The walker had fortunately recovered slightly and was able, with assistance, to be transferred to the waiting helicopter for a direct flight to Northern General Hospital. Team members were left with a very pleasant evening's walk back down off Kinder with the summer solstice sun settling in the distance, to repack and restock kit outside the Nags Head. Remember to request Mountain Rescue - Dial 999, ask for Police and then Mountain Rescue.

Mam Tor Face

Incident 146 - Saturday 23rd December 2023, 14:11 hrs   The team were called by Derbyshire Constabulary following reports of a walker stuck on the face of Mam Tor. A fellow walker had spotted the gentleman making his way onto the unstable ground of the face, before seemingly becoming cragfast, and not moving position for some 45 minutes. The observer called the police who passed the detail onto Edale MRT via thr PDMRO controller. Local team members were rapidly on scene, with one at the foot of the crag to establish "eyes on" the casualty, whilst a further team member was able to access the face from the ridge at the side and walk to the casualties position. With some coaching and a confidence rope the casualty was walked to safety and escorted off the hill. This is the second incident within the space of a few months, in an almost identical position. Mam Tor face is very unstable, and not a place to go exploring. The risk of becoming stuck, or falling is very high. We would advise all walkers to steer clear of straying onto the face, or the surrounding steep ground. There are numerous spots nearby where fantastic views of the face and surrounding area can be had without putting yourself or others in danger.
