Old Man of Coniston

Incident 28 of 2020:-
28/08/2020, 15:39, Old Man of Coniston, SD273974
While incident 27 was ongoing, our Team Leader, following the reported track of that missing person, found a group of 6 people who were lost on steep ground while ascending the Old Man directly from Goat’s Water. He accompanied them to the summit and down to Saddlestone Quarry, from where they were able to see their car and hence make their own way down, thus avoiding an unnecessary call-out later.
This incident involved 1 team member for 1 hr 30 mins while the previous incident was ongoing.
