The rescue of two young women proved to be quite a challenge. They reported themselves in difficulty near the summit of Fairfield in blizzard conditions and fierce winds. We managed to identify their position using SARLOC, but were unable to get near them for 7 hours, battling hurricane force winds which made progress via two routes impossible. At around 2 am a team from Kendal Mountain Rescue Team managed to get to them and commence evacuation. They in turn were backed up by a team from RAF Leeming MRT.

Two men contacted police asking for directions, being unable to locate a route off Hart Crag. A bit of detective work, followed by some difficulty actually managing to speak to them, due to poor mobile phone coverage, and we agreed that their best option was to follow the wall south from their location to Ambleside. They confirmed that they had safely found their way down at about 21:15

Two women reported themselves in difficulty in the Tongue Ghyll/Grizedale Tarn area. One of them was very cold. After having intermittent contact with them, a search was organised. We managed to work out their direction of travel, since their survival blanket had ripped and was useless and they had decided to move again. They were located at Grizedale Hause, having accidentally gone up Fairfield, as we're on their way down again (although they were unaware of this!!)
