Call Out Date: 30/07/2018

Callout Time: 4:24 pm

Location: High Spy, Nitting Haws

Agency Involved: Keswick MRT

Incident Details:

A father and son were caught out in heavy rain and poor visibility whilst walking from Maiden Moor to High Spy. They decided to descend to Borrowdale on the path via Nitting Haws. Due to the conditions they lost the path and ended up stuck in difficult and slippery terrain. A small Keswick mountain rescue team was dispatched to Hollows Farm campsite, but as the weather had by then improved, the father and son had made their own way safely down to the campsite.
