Incident Report #6 1999

Four separated parties met up on the summit of Long Top and phoned for help on a mobile when they became disorientated and frightened. A couple of fast team members were sent to locate them and start the descent, and a couple of ploddy ones followed up with more lights, hot drinks and a nameless chocolate bar to assist with the walk off. The worrying thing was that several of the party should never have been there in the first place, due to lack of experience. Two of the party should really have been able to find a way down, given they were carrying a GPS, and had sufficient experience to make it possible to sort themselves out.
