We were called by Police about two walkers reported overdue from a trip up Great Gable. With their route starting at Seathwaite and ending at Honister we handed the incident over to our colleagues in Keswick team but continued to support with a search of the Wasdale side of Great Gable. The two walkers were ultimately found at a campsite 4 hours later, apparently a case of mis-communication.

Incident started at 18:52 and ended at 00:10 making 5.3 hrs in total. There were 16 Wasdale team members involved. Total rescuer hours: 85
