As we were finishing the Brown Tongue incident we were asked by our colleagues in the Keswick team to support them in rescuing 4 people cragfast in Central Gully on Great End. Keswick team members were able to lower them down most of the gully then they were helped down the last few meters by Wasdale members and back to Wasdale to collect their vehicle.

Incident started at 15:31 and ended at 23:30 making 8 hrs in total. There were 6 Wasdale team members involved and the incident occured at NY 228 086 (altitude 705 m). Total rescuer hours: 48
