Broad Crag

We were called by Police about 2 walkers who’d become stuck after taking a slide on hard snow whilst descending Broad Crag. With help from Sarloc their position was established on as on the craggy ground overlooking the top of Piers Gill. Whilst it was possible to get close to them following their shouts and whistles actually getting on scene was challenging due to finding  way through the mix of snow banks and crags. Once they were located a rope was used to help them down to safer ground and then they were walked back to Wasdale


Incident started at 16:46 and ended at 23:12 making 6.4 hrs in total. There were 9 Wasdale team members involved and the incident occured at NY 21678 07574 (altitude 873 m). Total rescuer hours: 58
