Members of two mountain rescue teams were called to the aid of a female walker who'd become exhausted in bad weather on the summit of Dove Crag.
Volunteers from Patterdale and Langdale Mountain Rescue Teams were called out on Saturday afternoon. The woman was assisted from the fell before either team arrived. They'd been joined by nine members of RAF Leeming Mountain Rescue Team and a Sea King helicopter from RAF Boulmer.
Patterdale MRT say they'd just finished dealing with an earlier incident, in which two people became temporarily stuck on Striding Edge. They made their own way to safety after instructions were provided by the Team.
The Team say they'd like to remind all those venturing onto the fells to check the weather and the fell top forecasts before venturing onto the high fells. There is still a considerable amount of snow up high and an ice axe and crampons remain essential for anyone attempting Swirral or Striding edges.

James Buis from Carlisle was the first man across the line and Heidi Dent from Kirkby Stephen was the first woman to finish the race.

Cumbria County Council is starting work on a £2.3 million road improvements scheme in Penrith.
The Council says it will improve access to the Gilwilly Industrial Estate and Eden Business Park. An extra lane will be added on the A592 Ullswater Road roundabout for southbound traffic, a revised layout and a new pedestrian crossing.
Phase two of the works is likely to start towards the summer and will involve construction of two new roundabouts on the B5288 Newton Road, at the junctions of Haweswater Road and Gilwilly Road.
Some bright or sunny intervals, but increasingly wintry showers, frequent and heavy at times, with some fresh snowfalls possible on the hills, especially by nightfall.
Strong westerly winds continuing, dragging in much colder air for the next few days.
Highs 5-6°C by afternoon
