Scafell Pike – Sun 13th Mar 2016 – Alert

Team contacted at 15:25 today by Cumbria Police to assist two females who had become crag fast somewhere on Scafell Pike. Due to the lack of information provided by the pair with regards to their location, and that we could not regain contact, we decided to allow them some time to ‘self help’.
As we were making a few more enquiries with Cumbria Police and checking car parks, the team leader managed to make contact with the pair who had been helped by 4 passing walkers and no longer required our assistance.
Please note that there is still a lot of snow on the mountain and people should go prepared for winter conditions.

Incident Type
Location Scafell Pike

Incident started at 15:27 and ended at 17:41 making 2.2 hrs in total.
