Two people with dogs reported themselves cragfast in a gully between Crinkle Crags and Bowfell. We set off to locate and rescue them, which is what would have happened if this is where they were. They had actually misidentified Pike O'Blisco and misreported their location, so managed to extract themselves while we were looking in the wrong place
