Having just returned from call out number 1, the team was called again. Two youths from Leyland, with inadequate clothing and footwear, fell some distance over snow covered ledges. Casualty with pelvic, leg injuries and exposure was stretcher lowered over the main buttress to base of crag, whilst second casually with exposure was lowered down Kilnshaw Chimney.
The team went to the assistance of a 17 year old youth from Leyland who sustained head, back and leg injuries when he fell 400' out of a snow filled gulley onto screes. His equipment and training shoes were unsuitable for the snow and ice conditions. Local climbers in the vicinity assisted with evacuation.
A light was reported high on the hillside above Kirkstone Pass. A team member went to check, and after seeing that it was making progress downhill and subsequently making voice contact, was able to establish that the person was not in need of help. It was very cold!
