We were alerted by Cumbria Police about 3 walkers who were stuck on bad ground on their descent from Great Gable.

“Phonefind” put their location in or near Great Hell Gate but erring on the side of caution, extra resources were called for in case it turned out to be a crag rescue.

The walkers were able to walk off with assistance.

Many thanks to the RAF and Duddon and Furness for their assistance.

Incident started at 00:37 and ended at 06:38 making 6 hrs in total. There were 9 Wasdale team members involved and the incident occured at NY211099. Total rescuer hours: 54
