Broad Crag Col, Scafell Pike

The team were alerted by Cumbria Police about a group of 8 who were lost when descending Scafell Pike. After several conversations with the group the Team Leader gave a bearing for them to follow and sent a small team to intercept them. This decision was mainly taken because of the high water levels up the valley due to so much rain. The conditions were very challenging. The group were located and then escorted back to their cars at the bottom of Hardknott Pass.

Incident started at 19:11 and ended at 04:12 making 9 hrs in total. There were 7 Wasdale team members involved and the incident occured at NY 217074. Total rescuer hours: 63
