She Survived By Staying Put

Apparently she went hiking to see a sunrise on a nearby mountain, and didn't take any gear with her. Maybe she'll know better next time.

A minimalist survival kit, which can fit in an Altoids tin, would comprise a butane lighter, button compass, tiny knife, and whistle, would allow you to make a fire for warmth or signalling, and the whistle would allow you to attract attention better than shouting could. Add a bottle of water, some granola bars, and a space blanket (all of them will fit into a woman's purse, or clip to it) and you would be fairly comfortable, instead of shivering and miserable.

Think about it.
