Unknown Location – Sat 4th May 2002 – Callout 17 in 2002

A call came in from the police to attend to a young lady who was exhausted below Cam Spout waterfall, Upper Eskdale, at the foot of Scafell Pike. The full team was called out yet again. Many of the team members having still not been home since the first rescue earlier that day.
The Deputy team leader and another member went up the valley to question the informants. Once established that the group with the exhausted walker were well equipped to stay out overnight, and there was also a little confusion over whether the group actually wanted to be rescued that night, the decision was made to stand down the team and to go up in the morning if required.
This was obviously a good decision as we were not recalled the following morning which would mean the group got themselves safely down the mountain the following day.
