Barrow/Stile End (71)

Callout Time: 6:22 pm
Agencies Involved: Keswick MRT

A walker descending Barrow towards Braithwaite called 999 after hearing calls of ‘help me’ 5 or 6 times. Due to the wind direction they believed the calls to be coming from the lower slopes of Grisedale Pike above hospital plantation or the Coledale area. A small team was sent to investigate but after searching the area between Barrow and Stile End then along the Coledale track to Force Crag nothing untoward was seen or heard. A false alarm with good intentions.

5 team members – 1 hours 50 minutes
