Agencies Involved: Keswick MRT
A man was following a recommended walk around the tops above Braithwaite using the AllTrails mapping software app. As it was getting dark he decided to take a short cut back to his start point by following a path on this app, from the summit of Causey Pike northwards to Stonycroft Beck. With increasing darkness he became confused and subsequently lost as he could not find the path even with his head torch. He therefore called 999 and mountain rescue for help. After he messaged a screenshot of his map showing his position the cause of his confusion became apparent. There is no path in this location, the mapping software was incorrect. He was guided over the phone to the correct path and he made his way down to be met by a small Keswick team to ensure he made his way to safety.
