Coniston Old Man

23:38 (Grid SD 272 978)

It was a cold, windy night when two lights were seen at the top of the Old Man by a local resident; the lights did not seem to be moving. At CUMPOL’s request, we sent a team up to investigate but found nothing. Later, a party of two was met back on the Walna Scar road, who confirmed that they had been descending with torches, but had been able to switch them off as the night was quite clear and moonlit. False alarm with good intent.

This call out involved 9 team members and lasted 1 hour 55 minutes.
