Incident 15/2018 – Apr. 4th Wed. 21.47 Sulber Area, Ingleborough, North Yorkshire – Mountain Rescue

4 Three Peaks walkers (m:23,22,17, f:21) reported themselves lost descending Ingleborough towards Horton, in poor weather conditions (snow and strong winds). A team of 7 members using CRO2 located the walkers near a gate on the track from Sulber Nick to Borrins. Although the group had a map, they had no compass, only 1 small torch between them, and their mobile phones were nearly out of battery. The group were taken to their car in Horton, and given advice regarding preparedness. This callout could have been avoided with the correct skills and equipment.
