47: Callout Saturday 10th December 2016

The team were called to the assistance of some walkers who had become disorientated on the plateau. They reported themselves in the area around Jacobs Ladder. I was able to talk to the group and through the use of SARLOC, establish that they wee in fact at the top of Crowden Clough. This is outside our operational are, but by now the team were operational so it as quicker for us to continue to their location. Once found, they were escorted down into Edale where their car was and our team members were then collected and returned to Hayfield.
