The team was alerted by Cumbria Police this morning for a gentleman and his teenage son who had became lost whilst descending from the summit of Scafell Pike. The pair had become disorientated due to the reduced visibility and the windy conditions and strayed from their desired route. When the pair came across what is thought to be the head of Piers Gill, they sensibly retraced their steps and made the call for help.
Using PhoneFind the Team Leader was able to pin point their location and safely talk the pair back to the main tourist path and familiar ground. The pair were then able to make it back down to their vehicle on their own steam.
