Incident Report #30 2007

A man in his 50's, who was part of a larger group, suffered a panic attack on the path at the upper end of Dungeon Ghyll. There was a little confusion as to whether they were in Stickle Ghyll, and we were unable to re-establish communications with the group. We received a message that part of the group were making their way down. Upon meeting them at the bottom, we were helped by the fact that the group were able to confirm the location as Dungeon Ghyll, but were pointing up at Stickle Ghyll! We eventually located the man, and with some 'encouragement' were able to get him down. The group were ill-prepared both in terms of equipment and experience for their trip and had been up on the hill for much longer than they had anticipated.
