The team were called by the police after a driver reported himself stuck on Hardknott Pass. He was not injured. Because there would have been a long wait for a recovery vehicle, and the weather was very cold, a small group of team members were asked to attend, taking extra warm clothing with them. They stayed on scene until the recovery vehicle arrived.
Incident started at 14:10 and ended at 18:08 making 4 hrs in total. There were 5 Wasdale team members involved and the incident occured at NY230014. Total rescuer hours: 20
