INCIDENT 08/2019 – Feb. 2nd. 18.42hrs – Souther Scales Fell, Ingleborough, North Yorkshire – Mountain Rescue

A couple (m 26, f 25), became benighted when trying to detour around the steep crags below Swine Tail (and without map, torch or compass, or winter gear) lost their bearings. A small team was sent to the location given by the Phonefind facility available to us, and after a check on their well being, they were escorted down to a team vehicle for transport back to their car.

This was the couples first outing in a mountainous area, and although not adequately equipped, it is hoped they will not be deterred from venturing out again, although hopefully after the advice given, they will next time be better prepared!
