2: Callout Sunday 2nd March 2014
- Type –Lost Fell Runners
- Location –Kinder Plateau
- Team Members – 30 Kinder MRT
- Duration – 5 hours or 150 volunteer man hours
A fell runner reported himself, partner and dog lost on Kinder after the weather had closed in. They were disorientated and unsure as to their location. Due to the minimal kit that fell runners carry, we were concerned for their welfare in the worsening conditions. They were able to provide a position using Lat and Long which we were able to convert to a grid reference and direct our first parties to them after a short search.
The plateau is really boggy after the winter rains and it took a long time to escort them back to our Landrovers waiting at Edale Cross and then back to Base for a warming brew and debrief.
