The Team Leader was alerted by Cumbria Police about a walker who was struggling to make any progress whilst descending Harter Fell. One of the party had descended to retrieve a blanket and to call for assistance.
However as the Team Leader was starting to make plans, a further call was received to say that the walker was moving slowly and that she probably wouldn’t need team assistance.
When it was confirmed later that the walker and the rest of the party had made it safely back to their vehicle the team was stood down.

Incident started at 17:44 and ended at 19:45 making 2 hrs in total. There were 2 Wasdale team members involved. Total rescuer hours: 4
