Hollowstones, Scafell Pike – Sat 21st Jun 2008 – Callout 31 in 2008

Whilst searching for the 2 male walkers, a further ‘999’ call came in to search for 4 (Three Peakers) who were lost in the Hollowstones area and sheltering in a KISU (bivvy tent). 2 Wasdale team members were sent out to find them. They were located not far away from the main descent path, huddled inside and unable to make their way off the mountain. They were looked after but due to the need to locate the other 2 lost walkers, they were pointed in the right direction and sent back down to the valley bottom under their own steam. Incident closed at 00:00 hrs
