Hind Crag, Seathwaite (33)



Incident No: 33

Call Out Date: 09/04/2018

Callout Time: 3:52 pm

Location: Hind crag, Seathwaite Borrowdale.

Agency Involved: KMRT

Incident Details:

The team received a call from a concerned walker who thought they could see an orange survival bag and could hear whistling just below the rock buttress of Hind crag. KMRT sent a truck to investigate further. Once at Seathwaite farm, team members spoke to students from a university who were surveying the area and were using orange markers as part of their study. Just to be sure team members double checked the location and confirmed it to be an orange marker. A false alarm with good intent.
8 team members 1 hour 13 minutes
