The Team Leader was alerted about a lost male who was descending Scafell Pike.
The Phonefind put him close to Blea Tarn in Eskdale. After several chats on the phone it was possible to ‘talk and walk’ him off without having to mobilise the team. This was good news as quite a lot of team members were at the base having a BBQ at the time!
Incident started at 17:18 and ended at 18:10 making 0.9 hrs in total. There was 1 Wasdale team member involved and the incident occured at NY 166 014. Total rescuer hours: 0.9
