While the team was mobilising for the previous incident, a call came in from Cumbria Police to say 2 walkers had reported themselves stuck on steep unstable ground. Using “phonefind” their location was pinpointed as Great Hell Gate on Great Gable. They were uninjured.
A team member, already on the hill, was fortuitously not far away and made his way to them. Another team member diverted from the previous job and took spare clothing and a short rope, in case it should be needed.
The walkers were escorted onto the climbers traverse path and down to Burnthwaite via Gavel Neese.
All casualties were COVID-19 negative but again, social distancing was well maintained throughout.
Incident started at 18:56 and ended at 22:30 making 3.6 hrs in total. There were 16 Wasdale team members involved and the incident occured at NY210099. Total rescuer hours: 58
