A couple phoned 999 when they became lost on the back of what they reported as Bowfell. Their call went through to Manx police, who in turn passed it on the ARCC Kinloss, who then contacted us. We were unable to recontact them to try and get more information about their location, so a search was organised. They were located at Cockley Beck as the search teams were deploying. A Seaking was on its way to assist to try and make best use of a spell of stable weather that we were enjoying but was able to turn back once they had been located

A man went walking, having told his wife and friends that he was going over Pike O'Blisco and Crinkle Crags. He failed to return. Team members searched overnight, assisted by members of RAF Leeming MRT and Lake's search dogs, but we failed to find him. A second search was being organised first thing on Sunday when he phoned police from Borrowdale, stating that he had made it down safely. It was long, cold, wet and windy night which made for very challenging conditions for team members

A handful of team members were in base repacking after the previous days efforts when one remarked on how long it had been since we had a long night search on Crinkle Crag... Eight hours later the Team Leader took a call from the Aeronautical Rescue Command Centre in Kinloss, reporting an activation of an emergency beacon in the vicinity of Crinkle Crags. Almost simultaneously we received notification of a 999 call reporting a group of 5 cragfast and benighted on Crinkle Crags...

A man was reported as having fallen on The Band. Unfortunately the group were off-route due to a navigational error and were located on horrible steep ground on the east face of Crinkle Crags. The man's inuries, sadly, were fatal. His body was recovered, and his companions were assisted from the hill in a protracted and difficult rescue. We were assisted by Kendal MRT and a helicopter from RAF Valley made valiant efforts to assist, but cloud base and wind condition meant it was of limited use. These few words to little justice to the difficulty of this rescue.

Man Hours: 
19 team members for 7 hours, plus Kendal MRT and RAF Valley helicopter
