Just 10 minutes after standing down from assisting the walker on the western edge path (callout 43), we received another call for assistance. A father and daughter were in difficulty on the southern edge path at the top of Crowden Brook. As we still had team members at base we were able to deploy swiftly.
Using the GPS in his phone we knew their location and following a conversation they managed to move to somewhere a little more sheltered to await our arrival. Two hill parties were despatched to assist them, walking them back to our awaiting Land Rovers at Edale Cross. Once driven down to Hayfield, we were able to return them to their car in Edale.
