Yewbarrow – Sat 25th Aug 2012 – Callout 47 in 2012 (limited)

We were contacted by Police about a family of 3 who had managed to ascend Yewbarrow but could not find their way down. Although the cloud was high the steepness of the ground was causing them to hold their position unsure of where to go next. We mounted a limited callout to help them off the mountain but before we assembled at base they phoned to say they’d bumped into other walkers who were going to help them get down. Incident closed 16:30. 8 team members involved.

Incident Type
Location Yewbarrow

Incident started at 15:50 and ended at 16:26 making 0.6 hrs in total.
