Incident 85/2017 – Nov 17th Fri. 17.30 – Ingleborough summit, North Yorkshire – Mountain Rescue.

Two three-peaks walkers (m, 24; f, 24) reported themselves benighted on the summit of Ingleborough, inadequately clad and shod, with no spare kit or food and only mobile phones for navigation and lighting. One had a panic attack, causing breathing difficulties.  CRO teams went up the hill from Chapel le dale and Crina Bottom, locating the pair at the summit shelter.  Having been given glucose and a drink, they were escorted down to Crina Bottom and driven back to their accommodation in Horton in Ribblesdale.
