Esk Buttress, Upper Eskdale

Call came in from Cumbria Police regarding two rock climbers who had failed to return at 6.30 p.m.  They had been climbing on Esk Buttress.  The team Leader waited until 10.35 before doing a full callout.  As seems to regularly happen, once the full team had been called out the two climbers inevitably turned up safe and well with no further action required.  Team was stood down at 10.40 p.m.
(4 manhours)

Incident started at 21:34 and ended at 22:40 making 1.1 hrs in total.
