A young female fell runner became disorientated on top of Glaramara in thick mist. Unable to determine the way down and with low battery left on her phone she called for mountain rescue help. Phonefine pinpointed her location on the summit and as she was getting cold she was advised to head north using the compass on her phone whilst a small team was mobilised to assist if necessary. Once the runner had dropped out of the cloud she could see the path and Borrowdale Valley and called the team to say she was OK to make her own way down. The team continued up the fell anyway to ensure she made it down OK in the rapidly fading daylight. When the team met her near the base of Combe Gill besides apologising and expressing her gratitude, she said she had made a mental note not to forget her compass next time.
