Some people shouldn't be allowed out of their front door.......let alone, allowed on the fells.

Agree, you come across people like this everywhere, even on the South Downs. Some of them wouldn't know which ways up ::).

It beggars belief that someone can actually think that they can successfully manage a group of 75!!!   

But then the fact that he couldn't account for 71 members of the group, that he was leading, proves that he's not very good at leading.
