14:31 (Grid SD 272 997)
Not a nice day on the fells – strong winds, rain, low cloud and colder than average for August. A family of 3 had reached the ridge but had become lost, cold and very wet. We used SARLOC to find them (a text from us unlocks their phone’s GPS position) and one of our team members already on the hill found them quickly. A small team also was despatched, and the family was led down via Levers Hause to our Land Rovers, then back to base for hot drinks.
This call out involved 10 team members and lasted 2 hours.
