Incident report

Two people assisted down Jacob’s Ladder after becoming lost whilst following a guidebook walk.  The two had walked from Edale along the southern Kinder edge path arriving at Edale Cross.  They then walked off route on to Brown Knoll and became disorientated.  Following telephone advice they walked down Jacob’s Ladder where they met team members who transported them back to Edale.
Team advice – take a map, compass and torch every time!
