Incident 83/2017 – Oct. 28th Sat. 11.07 – Ingleborough, North Yorkshire – Mountain Rescue.

A party of 5 walkers reported themselves stuck on the top of Ingleborough, due to thick cloud, and felt it unsafe to descend. Despite advice by phone from the duty controller, the party refused to leave the summit shelter.

A small CRO party was therefore assembled, and despatched to meet the group. Fortunately before the CRO party reached Crina Bottom, the controller was contacted to say that another group were escorting the party off the hill. Volunteer hours: 4
