As they could see the Mickledore stretcher box it was surmised they were on Broad Stand or its approach from above. As we were leaving base we got further call from the walkers to tell us they’d made their own way back up the hill and we stood down. Incident closed 16:22, 12 WMRT involved.
Incident started at 15:04 and ended at 16:22 making 1.3 hrs in total. There were 12 Wasdale team members involved. Total rescuer hours: 16
