INCIDENT 7/2020 – Jan. 30th. Thu. 17.01hrs – Simon Fell, Ingleton – Mountain Incident

Two walkers (m,51; f, ) reported themselves lost, benighted, wet and cold, in cloud, on Ingleborough. With no response to the Phonefind app and their phone seeming always to be engaged, it was a while before their position could be confirmed. Team members met in Chapel le dale and a ‘hasty party’ climbed the steep slope to the edge of Simon Fell, provided extra insulation and escorted the walkers down to a team vehicle, where the CRO Medical Officer assessed their condition. Other members waited below, in case additional help was needed.

Volunteer hours: 58.
