The two women, in their early 20's and from the Midlands had started out from Minffordd, but somewhere on the summit plateau their map was lost, they consequently took a wrong turning, and ended up coming down Foxes Path. The Phonefind protocol was used to locate the pair via their smartphone, and verbal description was given to get them onto the main Foxes path. They were encouraged to keep clicking the link to help call handlers monitor their progress while a couple of Team volunteers climbed up from Gwernan Lake hotel to meet them and escort them down.
High water levels in the Llyn Gafr outflow and other streams pushed the walkers off course just as they were about to meet with the rescuers heading up hill. Fortunately, the updated Phonefind location alerted handlers to this issue and a texted request to hold position was sent as the rescuers were directed to locate them.
Everyone was safely off the mountain by 10:00 p.m.
