Great Gable

A call was received for two walkers who had got lost on the descent from Great Gable. They had managed to get as far as the intake wall on the Sty Head path and were concerned that the light from their phone would not last long enough to see them off the hill. They were reassured that they did not have far to go and asked to make contact once down, which they did, so the team did not have to go out.

Incident started at 20:16 and ended at 21:42 making 1.4 hrs in total. There were 3 Wasdale team members involved and the incident occured at NY 206 094. Total rescuer hours: 4.2
