Clare Wright from Birmingham died after falling on Scafell
Mountain rescue volunteers say they are well-equipped to cope with the rising number of call-outs in the Lakes.
On Friday, one woman died and several people were injured in a string of accidents on the region's peaks.
Patterdale's team saw one of their busiest weeks ever, with nine rescues in just five days, including two on Helvellyn's notorious Striding Edge.
But rescuers denied that teams are at breaking point, saying the current arrangement remains "workable".
Martin Cotterill, Patterdale team leader, said: "Our team usually responds to about 60 or 70 call-outs per year, so nine in one week is extremely unusual.
"We're all volunteers with other jobs, and I for one haven't got much work done this week or seen much of my family, but it will probably go quiet now.
"Ask me on different days and I'd have different views. It does have a big impact on our lives, but it's certainly workable."
The 49-year-old woman who died after falling from Shamrock Crag at Scafell on Friday has been named as Clare Wright from Birmingham.
Her death followed two rescue operations on Helvellyn, including one which left a walker with spinal injuries when she fell from Striding Edge.
More than 40 rescuers were involved in the incidents.
Julian Carradice, Wasdale's team leader, agreed that the rescue work often felt like a "full-time job".
But he said it was a tradition for fell-walking enthusiasts to assist each other, and that the job should remain in the hands of skilled volunteers.
