Whilst the team were returning to base along the side of Wastwater they noticed a flashing light on the Screes path. Shouting across to the light there were a group of girls who were stick on the boulder field and only had one very small torch between them all. A group went across to assist and took them back to the YHA Building at the bottom end of the lake. Incident closed early morning.
