The team were paged by the police following a ‘999’ from a three peaker support vehicle in Seathwaite. Two male three peakers (42 and 22 yrs) had set off from Seathwaite at 5.00 p.m. to climb Scafell Pike after climbing Ben Nevis earlier that day. They did not return so the call was made. Their intended destination was Wasdale Head. The team leader decided to wait until first light and then did a full team callout at 7:15 hrs As is usually the case the missing persons turned up safe and well at 7:30 hrs having taken a wrong turn on the hill and ended up at Brotherikeld at the foot of Hardknott Pass, Eskdale. Not logged as an official incident by the team as no direct involvement.
