Coast to coast

Incident Report #91 2016

The team were paged for a couple who were lost and benighted, supposedly in Far Easedale, and attempting to get from Rosthwaite to Grasmere. Since we were just about to sit down to our annual dinner, we passed the incident on to Kendal MRT, who had kindly provided cover for us. The size of the search escalated as it became obvious the couple were not where they thought they were, and they were eventually they were located cold and wet near Rosthwaite.

Incident Report #63 2012

A group of three were reported overdue on the Coast to Coast. In gathering information at the start of proceedings, it became apparent that this same party had been in the same situation the previous night, where, amongst other things, a mountain rescue team member suffered a serious ankle injury during the search for them. A search was organised for the party, with help from Lakes Search Dogs and Keswick MRT. Thankfully, they were located quite quickly, off-route in Wythburn. The 75-year-old male in the party had sustained an lower leg injury.

Two men walking from Borrowdale to Grasmere got separated in what seemed like odd circumstances in the Greenup Edge area. One man made it down to Grasmere and reported his companion overdue. With concerns about the other man's health and the state of his footwear, a search was mounted immediately. He was located in Wythburn by members of Keswick MRT and escorted off the hill.
