Mountain rescue teams carry rescue apparatus, so in fair weather travel light and fast without much personal kit. If one of the team needs help, they radio for assistance giving an exact location.

Not sure what your point is here, but the person referred to had to be rescued in non fair weather circumstances pioneering new routes.

I've also had to help push a fully loaded MacInnes stretcher as the team were short of members. It was far from easy work. They also had very heavy packs. One of which I also carried when the casualty was loaded.
