The area is a notorious mobile phone black-spot, and the informant, a walker who had encountered the party, had to travel 6 miles to a nearby hotel to raise the alarm. He had then returned to the casualty to further help stabilise the situation.
The injured man, in his late 50's, had slipped on a muddy section of path near the foot of the waterfall and injured his knee. He did not report much pain at rest but the knee would not support him when trying to walk. Having waited for the alarm to be raised, and then for the Team to reach him, he was also starting to feel the cold.
The injured knee was splinted for support, then the man was transported by stretcher to the car-park, where family members were able to transport him to further hospital-based assessment and treatment.
Everyone was off the hill and back at vehicles by 8:00 p.m.
