Agencies Involved: Keswick MRT
It always seems windy on the summit ridge of Skiddaw but today a couple experienced 50 to 60 mile an hour gusts and had to take cover for fear of being blown off. They made the call for help as they did not want to leave the relative safety of a summit shelter. However with some encouragement over the phone, they made their way back along the ridge, linked up with a couple of other walkers and self rescued.
Keswick MR sent out three members in the event that physical assistance was required but were stood down when they heard the walkers were in safe and less exposed terrain.
