During this period we received two call outs, both of which did not ultimately need our assistance and we were stood down shortly afterwards. The Team Leader however remained in contact on both occasions to ensure the safety of all those involved,
Firstly 4 walkers reported themselves as being lost in mist. They had climbed the Old Man, but wandered off course. Fortunately some people were able to escort them down from Brown Pike, at the southern end of Dow Crag.
Secondly, a lady was suffering from hypoglycaemia whilst on the ridge near Levers Hawse. After a while the sugar intake started to take affect and she was well enough to walk off the fell with the aid of people in her party.
