They called for help, and teams from both sides of Greenup Edge responded to locate them.
Call Out Conclusion:
They were found by a Keswick MRT member, who was accompanying a Search Dog handler, on the path up towards Lining Crag, cold, damp and forlorn. They were then walked down to Fairy Glen and evacuated by vehicle.
