A joint Buxton/Edale Mountain Rescue Team snatch squad was called to Edale on Saturday night, following reports of an injured walker.
We located a 46 year old male from Repton, Derbyshire, near Halfway Rocks in Grindsbrook Gorge. He had slipped whilst walking and sustained a dislocated shoulder.
The man was treated on site by team medics, including pain relief and splinting. He was then placed on our stretcher and carried for more than a kilometre to Grindslow House, Edale. From here he was transferred into the waiting land ambulance, and taken to Chesterfield Royal Hospital for further treatment.
