Great Carrs

Incident 30 of 2022
03/08/22, 12.41, Great Carrs, NY270008
The fell-tops were in cloud and the Met forecast gusts over 40mph. Our colleagues at Duddon and Furness MRT (DFMRT) had a callout for a lost walker on Great Carrs. Since this was just within our boundary between our respective ‘patches’, they called us to advise of the incident. The female walker had lost her map in the high wind and was disoriented in the cloud, and hence called for help. Her position had been fixed via phonefinder as close to the aircraft crash memorial near the summit of Great Carrs. It was agreed that both teams would despatch parties from their sides. Coniston deployed three members up from Three Shire Stone on Wrynose Pass, and had the shorter walk up, so arrived with the casualty first. She was given warm clothing, escorted down to our vehicle and driven back to her car at the Walna Scar car park.
6 volunteer members attended for 4 hours and 10 minutes plus the 6 members deployed by DFMRT.
