Great End – Mon 22nd Jan 2001 – Callout 2 in 2001

Request to assist Keswick MRT in a search of Great End. A single male climber, in his twenties, was reported to be lost. He had in fact already turned up at Wasdale Head and the Police had been informed. (although the message can’t have got through to Keswick Police). A Wasdale team member went up to Great End to recover the missing person’s rucksack – which he had apparently left at the foot of one of the Great End gullies, the day before. Wasdale Base was left open to maintain radio communications for the team member. It turned out the missing person (from Canada) had been lost on Sunday and had got lost again on the Monday, while trying to recover his rucksack
