Three male walkers were benighted on the Scafell range in severe weather conditions and although they had telephoned their wives to let them know that they were happy to bivvy out until the morning, due to the medical history on one of the walkers, the Langdale and Ambleside Team were called out to locate the group. Wasdale MRT were called in to search the Scafell Pike area. The position of the lost walkers was identified as somewhere between Esk Hause and Angle Tarn, just as the Wasdale team were ready to deploy. Team members were stood down shortly after the callout and the base was closed at 1:00 hrs

Incident started at 00:33 and ended at 01:00 making 0.5 hrs in total.
