A pair of walkers got in to difficulty, initially on the summit of Harrison Stickle. They were unable to locate a safe way off the summit in poor visibility. They were given directions off the top and a small group was sent to meet them because they had no torches and would run out of daylight before they got down. Before they could be located they missed the path again, becoming cragfast on steep ground, with darkness adding to the poor visibility. They were eventually located and evacuated to safe ground.

A group descending Dungeon Ghyll allowed their dog to run free and become stuck on steep ground. Group members tried to recover the dog, while others called 999 and asked for assistance. In an attempt to avoid human casualties on this area of steep ground, the team was deployed to recover the dog. We were on route when we were alerted to the fact that the dog had been recovered by a team member who had been climbing in the area. Much loved as your average dog is, you have to question whether it's worth a human life.. especially given the norm were the animal self rescues...
