We were called by our colleague from Cockermouth Team about 2 walkers who’d become lost whilst descending Great Gable. Using Sarloc The walkers location was determined to be on the Ennerdale Face of Great Gable near Beck Head. A small group of Wasdale Members who’d been supporting the Lingmell Dash fell race went up to the location and helped to re-warm the walkers before the Cockermouth Members arrived who walked them back to Honister.

Incident started at 16:19 and ended at 19:24 making 3.1 hrs in total. There were 5 Wasdale team members involved and the incident occured at NY20977 10564. Total rescuer hours: 16
