Edale Mountain Rescue Team were called to Gardom's Edge, near to the A621, at just before 4.30pm.

Whilst bouldering a male had come across a female whom he had concern for.

She was treated at the bottom of the crag by a team paramedic and the crew of the Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Rutland Air Ambulance. Once packaged she was carried the short distance on a mountain rescue stretcher back to the top of the crag for transfer to the Northern General in Sheffield.
