INCIDENT 61/2020 – Aug. 29th Sat. 14.46hrs – Lord’s Seat, Horton Moor, Pen-y-ghent – Mountain Incident

The team were called to Horton Moor again on Saturday, to a walker (f,32) who had become disoriented and lost trying to return to Horton in Ribblesdale from Pen-y-ghent. The walker was located by team members using the phonefind facility, in an area of very broken uneven ground. She was found by a small team of members and escorted to a team vehicle and then driven down to her vehicle in Horton. The walker was upset at her navigation error and being unable to resolve it, and was extremely apologetic when team members found her. We hope she finds herself able to get back out on the hills again soon. There are lots of online resources to ensure you are equipped with the skills, knowledge and equipment for a great day out.
