Two females possibly cragfast on Striding Edge

Patterdale Mountain Rescue Team were alerted by a walker who had seen two females who looked like they were possibly struggling with the terrain on Striding Edge, Helvellyn. The informant thought the couple may be cragfast and unable to go up or down. With the shorter day light hours the Team quickly responded. As the Team were ascending the path to Striding Edge, they met two ladies coming down who matched the description of the cragfast pair. The ladies had managed to make there way slowly off Striding Edge. The Team then escorted them down safely to the village of Glenridding.
