We were called by Police about 3 walkers reporting themselves lost whilst trying to make their way from Scafell Pike to Langdale. Using Sarloc it was determined they were on the path that links Broad Crag Col to the Corridor Route, but it wasn’t possible to phone them back. We decided to send a small team to check their last location and they were soon met near Burnthwaite Farm having walked down to Wasdale and they got an expensive taxi back to Langdale.
Incident started at 16:56 and ended at 17:00 making 0.1 hrs in total. There were 3 Wasdale team members involved and the incident occured at NY21560784 (altitude 731 m). Total rescuer hours: 0.3
