The call came in for two women lost in the Cold fell area. They were cold, wet, totally lost but very apologetic.
Following a phone find location and after a few conversations on the phone, a limited call out was initiated to find them.
Most team members met up at an RV point on Cold fell and mobile 2 deployed as well as Jess. Whilst the team were walking to the location the mispers were advised to walk down hill with the beck on their left hand side to meet up with the team.
A relay was used at Skalderskew farm which worked really well in keeping a good line of communication between base and team members.
Incident started at 14:59 and ended at 20:49 making 5.8 hrs in total. There were 13 Wasdale team members involved and the incident occured at NY12161137. Total rescuer hours: 75
