Corridor Route, Scafell Pike – Mon 10th Sep 2018 – Callout 48 in 2018 (limited)

The team was alerted to 3 walkers who had got lost whilst descending Scafell Pike.  Contact was made and using PhoneFind the duty team leader was able to determine their location on the corridor route. After further conversations, directions were given and the party made their way towards Lingmell Col.  Given the lack of equipment a limited call out was made and a small party set off to assist the walkers off the hill.  In the mean time they had met up with other walkers and having made good progress off the hill were met by the team on Lingmell nose traverse and escorted them back to their car.
