INCIDENT 01/2021 – Jan. 10th Sun. 16.35 – Ingleborough summit, North Yorkshire. – Mountain Incident

Two visitors (m, f), walking from Clapham, reached the summit shelter on Ingleborough, but were unable to find the way off at dusk, in low cloud and on trampled snow and ice. A small team drove to the top of Fell Lane, Ingleton, then continued up on foot, taking extra clothing and micro-spikes. The pair were extremely cold, but able to walk down to the Land Rovers, guided by the CRO members. They were returned to their car in Clapham.

They had set off at 13.00hrs, wearing lightweight jackets and smooth-soled footwear as well as using Google Maps for navigation.
