Two Three Peaks walkers (both m,20) called for an ambulance, saying that one was unable to continue (legs seized), that they were ‘at the base of Ingleborough’ and ‘can see the B6479’. Their phone was then unavailable to calls and texts from the CRO duty controller. As a local CRO member was covering the road between Selside and Horton, the licensee of The Old Hill Inn, Chapel le dale, rang to say that they were there, but that they had believed it to be The Crown, at Horton in Ribblesdale. CRO and YAS stood down.

While scanning the hillside above Horton for these two walkers, the local CRO member saw lights near Beecroft Hall. Investigation revealed a group of six, so determined to complete the Three Peaks unaided that they were carrying one of their party to the finish.
