Five people in their 20s are safe after spending a frigid night stranded on Eagle Mountain in Coquitlam.

Search and rescue crews say the hikers were on the mountain for over 20 hours before they were found early yesterday.

Al Hurley of Coquitlam Search and Rescue says the group was unprepared and only wearing thin clothing for the hike.

He says the walk down the mountain was difficult in icy, steep conditions, but fortunately no one was harmed.
