As a few team members were involved in incident no 68, a second call came in from a walker concerned about a group of five Three Peaks walkers (3 x m, 2 x f) he believed to be cold and struggling on the descent from Ingleborough. They turned up in Horton with the misper from incident no 68 among them. It seems that two had seen no 68 struggling on Ingleborough and ‘adopted’ him. They then got lost on the summit, along with two others they met. They all began descending by the wrong path, but were put right by other walkers and all walked down to Horton.
The Duty Controller says ‘It was more complicated than this.‘.
Volunteer hours for 68/69 combined: 7
