Dow Crag

10:15 (Grid SD 262 978)

It was a cold, windy day with the hills covered in fog. CUMPOL (Cumbria Police) called us to help a solo walker apparently lost on the Old Man of Coniston. We used our phonefinder resource to locate him, actually on Dow Crag, and a small team of 3 went up to escort him down via Goat’s Hawse.

This incident was attended by 10 volunteer team members, and lasted 2hrs 25mins.
