We were called by Police about a walker struggling to make their way down off Scafell Pike due to severe cramp. In the end the cramp improved and they made their own way off without team assistance.
Unfortunately it took a long time to confirm they were safely down off the fell and we’d encourage all people who contact us to let us or Police know when they’re down, safe & well.
Incident started at 14:50 and ended at 21:30 making 6.7 hrs in total. There was 1 Wasdale team member involved and the incident occured at NY207074 (altitude 645 m). Total rescuer hours: 7
