The team leader was called by the Langdale and Ambleside team leader for assistance with a rescue. A married couple from Settle, in their early forties, had set off from Three Shires Stone to climb Crinkle Crags. They had become disorientated and were somewhere on the Eskdale side. Although the weather was reasonable and they might have been able to make their own way out, the forecast was for extreme conditions later that evening. They had no torches. Langdale team went up Mosedale to locate them and Wasdale undertook a limited callout on the Eskdale side. There were approximately 6 Wasdale team members involved. The two walkers were located at Throstlegarth, just above Lincove Bridge and were walked off the hill to Brotherikeld. They were given a lift back to the top of Wrynose Pass where their car was parked. The incident was closed at 6.00 p.m.

Incident started at 15:30 and ended at 18:00 making 2.5 hrs in total. There were 6 Wasdale team members involved. Total rescuer hours: 15
