Pair rescued after wet night on Kinder
Bookmark and Share
Two men have been rescued after suffering a night of cold and wet weather on Kinder Scout.

The pair, aged 58 and 68, became lost in bad weather on the Derbyshire mountain on Tuesday this week (November 2nd) and spent the night huddled together in an emergency bag, Grough reports.

Both were soaked to the skin and one had signs of hypothermia when they were reached by mountain rescue volunteers on Wednesday morning, having tried but failed to walk down.

Such an ordeal may help emphasise the need for waterproof jackets, as well as the benefits of equipment like a walking GPS.

Kinder Scout has a flat plateau on top, making the highest point at 2,088 ft (636 m) hard to locate.

It is marked by a small cairn that is not prominently visible, unlike the nearby trig point on a granite outcrop on Kinder Low to the south, which is 11 ft lower.
