We were called by Police about a group of 2 walkers reporting themselves lost near the top of Scafell Pike. After discussion on the phone it was established they were likely to be near Broad Crag Col and were given directions to retrace their steps to the summit from where they met another 3 peaks party who helped walk them down to Wasdale. The team did assemble at the base in case we were needed to help but were not required in the end.
Incident started at 20:58 and ended at 00:00 making 3 hrs in total. There were 7 Wasdale team members involved and the incident occured at NY 215 072 (altitude 963 m). Total rescuer hours: 21
