When they realised that they could not return they had no telephone coverage, so they had to spend the night in the mountains. Once they could find phone coverage and raise the alarm, a team from the Guardia Civil Mountain Rescue and Intervention Group (GREIM) flew to the area by helicopter to the area.

Once they were found, they were provided with water and warm clothing and were transferred to a suitable place from where they could be hoisted up on board the helicopter and flown to safety.
Both were said to have been found safe and well and required no medical treatment.
