Grisedale Pike (87)
Callout Time: 11:41 am
Agencies Involved: Keswick MRT
After camping overnight close to the summit, a couple found themselves in cloud and unable to find their descent path. After a short off-piste attempt into the snowy NE bowl, they decided it would be safer to call 999 and ask for Mountain Rescue assistance. The team deployed two vehicles with a few other team members going direct. The team were able to approach using the forest tracks in Whinlatter before continuing on foot up the Sleet How ridge. The pair were quickly found, harnessed and helmeted then short-roped back to the main path from where they were accompanied back to their car above Braithwaite.
