The team was contacted by the Police to assist a pair of lost walkers on Scafell Pike. After attempts to talk them off the mountain over the phone failed a full callout was made and a group of 12 rescuers and two search dogs went to find them and help them down. The pair were found wet and cold, in a tent above Mickledore near the top of Pikes Crag. After equipping with more clothing we walked them down to Brackenclose.
