Ill Crag – Sun 22nd May 2016 – Alert

We were contacted by Police about a group of 5 walkers who were having difficulty following the path through the boulder field on Ill Crag whilst trying to return to Borrowdale. Using the compass feature on an iPhone within the party the team leader was able to provide position information over the phone which helped them make their own way off the fell. We would recommend that all iPhone owners familiarise themselves with how to obtain a Lat / Long position using the Compass feature under Utilities
