Incident Report #41 2016

Flashing lights were reported in area of White Ghyll/Scout Crag. We investigated, and although we saw the lights, they were not flashing a recognised distress signal, nor responding to our attempts to communicate, so we went home. We did see shooting stars, a satellite, and with Lancaster Universities aurora alert showing high activity there was a possibility of Northern Lights being spotted. The aurora proved as elusive as the source of the flashing lights so we went home

Incident Report #111 2015

  A member of a group took a tumble up on the Climber's Traverse on Bowfell,  sustaining facial injuries. With our team already committed to the previous, serious incident, along with members of Kendal MRT, and  a Duddon MRT member who made the mistake of being at our base when it kicked off, it was necessary to request Coniston MRT to assist. This they did, and evacuated the man to the valley floor
