The team were called to rescue a party of two walkers on Scafell Pike. A 20yr old autistic male along with his carer were benighted and lost. Good telephone communications with the lost walkers established that they were most probably in the Hollowstones area. A limited callout was made but when the team got to the individual at around 12:45 hrs, it was decided that a full callout was needed to stretcher him down the mountain as he was moving so slowly. He did eventually mange to walk down himself but very slowly. The back up group remained in the valley bottom. 10 team members were involved and the incident was closed in the early hours.
Incident started at 22:30. There were 10 Wasdale team members involved and the incident occured at NY2073 0754 (altitude 678 m).
