Upper Eskdale

Whist searching for the missing mother and son (see incident 48 below) two of the Wasdale team members went to assist a group of five young walkers who had set off from Wasdale earlier that day to climb Scafell Pike and became lost on the summit, descending into Eskdale by mistake. They were found on the Heron Crag side of the river Esk and were walked back down the valley to Brotherilkeld.

Incident started at 22:30.
