Two 19 year olds became stuck after veering off the descent path from the summit of Blencathra. The couple had descended steeply down Gate Gill and, unable to retrace their steps or find a way to continue down, they dialled 999 and asked for Mountain Rescue assistance. With their location confirmed using Phone Find a small team was dispatched to help the uninjured pair down and take them back to their vehicle.
