A call was received for three walkers who were lost on the Scafell Pike (Ill Crag) area.
It was bitterly cold and wet, getting dark and they had no lights. They were given directions to walk off via Esk Hause, it being an easier option and with the wind behind them. However, they next made contact at Broad Crag Col, in the opposite direction, where they fortuitously met another group who guided them down to Wasdale.
The team had intended to meet them with torches, food and spare clothing, but they were stood down before going on the hill.

Incident started at 16:27 and ended at 19:07 making 2.7 hrs in total. There were 10 Wasdale team members involved and the incident occured at NY 223 077. Total rescuer hours: 27
