Three males set off to walk up Scafell Pike as part of their 3-peaks challenge late in the afternoon. They left Burnthwaite heading for Styhead then turned to the south, crossing the beck and proceeding up Lingmel crags. Two turned back due to the ‘steepness of the rocks’. The third male carried on but failed to return. He was dressed in shorts and ‘T’ shirt. The full team were called out but he turned up safe and well after coming down Brown Tongue. The team were stood down and the base closed before midnight.
Incident started at 21:30 and ended at 23:50 making 2.3 hrs in total.
