We were called by Keswick MRT via Cumbria Police about a report from a walker who was concerned about another walking group of five descending from Scafell Pike along the Corridor Route. The Keswick and Wasdale Team Leaders discussed the situation (they were currently on our ‘patch’ but possibly aiming to walk into Borrowdale) and decided that no action was to be taken at that time as there was no indication that assistance was required. Keswick MRT later received a further call requesting assistance as they were now at the Styhead stretcher box and in need of help to get back to their cars at Seathwaite. They deployed along with RAF Leeming (see KMRT callout #36), and the Wasdale Team Leader stood down.

Incident started at 19:42 and ended at 22:42 making 3 hrs in total. There was 1 Wasdale team member involved. Total rescuer hours: 3
