We were called by Cumbria Police about a walker who was stuck on Broad Stand, the cliff just above Mickledore.
The team were already on the hill for the previous incident and as that casualty was already en route to hospital by air, the team were diverted to this incident.
Some team members had to go back down to the vehicles for crag kit, then walked up to the top of Scafell with the necessary equipment. Rope systems were set up from above, to enable the walker to be safely lowered to terra firma. The walker was uninjured and then able to walk down.

Incident started at 18:10 and ended at 01:07 making 7 hrs in total. There were 15 Wasdale team members involved and the incident occured at NY209068. Total rescuer hours: 105
