Team called early morning about a walker reported overdue from a long trip round the ridges of Yewbarrow, Red Pike, Scoat Fell, Haycock and Seatallen. With so much ground to cover our colleagues from Cockermouth Mountain Rescue Team and Duddon and Furness Mountain Rescue Team also joined the search along with the Lake District Mountain Rescue Searchdogs and further support from Cumbria Police. The walker was found safe and well between Seatallen and Greendale Tarn by a Keswick Dog Handler then walked back to Greendale by Duddon members.

Incident started at 00:34 and ended at 07:45 making 7.2 hrs in total. There were 14 Wasdale team members involved and the incident occured at NY146 081 (altitude 477 m). Total rescuer hours: 101
