Unknown Location – Thu 18th Jul 2019

Weather: Mild with low cloud

The team responded to assist a walker who had become lost in low cloud after summiting Scafell Pike. Their location was established as being on Broad Crag using PhoneFind, and the decision was made to send a Limited Team Callout to walk them back down as they were unable to relocate the path. We were happily surprised to find they also had a friendly dog wearing the team colours, who appreciated being carried down after a long day!
