Yet more CRO rescues (see https://cro.org.uk/all-news/) in the last fortnight of people unprepared or not realising the difficulty of the walk especially this late in the year when the light is limited.

God bless the men and women of CRO. This walker has sustained an ankle injury. No surprise they couldn't get back down in time.

Yes indeed God bless the CRO, although at the time of posting I was referring to an incident on the 28th Sept when a group of 3 Peakers got lost and benighted coming off Ingleborough.

On such a long walk anyone can have an accident or have a health issue but to be generally unprepared/ill equipped is careless bordering on foolish.

7 more incidents for the CRO to deal with since my original posting, most of whom were lost & benighted (i.e. lost on the hills after dark with no light source).

Late autumn/winter stupidity.
