Incident Details:

Two 21 year olds became crag fast on Sharp Edge on Blencathra. After trying to cross the ridge they became concerned for their safety and headed onto steep unstable ground away from the ridge itself. The pair then became crag fast as the ground was wet and slippery underfoot. The two were not confident to continue moving and made a call to get help. A team of two vehicles responded and the pair were helped down to safety uninjured.
