Raw Pike

Incident Report #4 1975

The team searched Lang Howe and Raw Pike areas {Grasmere and Langdale sides) after local residents at Grasmere had seen two white flares high on the fells. The search was called off at 11.00 p.m. and nothing was found. Footnote: The weather was very good, with clear skies. This was a false alarm with good intent.

Incident Report #66 1999

A couple in their 20s got into difficulty when they overestimated their ability and became benighted, cold and wet. They phoned for help on their mobile phone. We located them after a brief search, and assisted them from the fell. Apart from some damage to clothing, they were unscathed. Unfortunately, if they learned anything from their experience, it wasn't immediately obvious.
