We were alerted by Cumbria Police about a walker whose footwear had unfortunately suffered a malfunction and they were attempting to descend from Scafell Pike barefoot. Thankfully, with some encouragement from the Team Leader they managed to repair the offending item sufficiently to make slow progress down by themselves, and the team were not needed to help.

Incident started at 18:33 and ended at 23:37 making 5.1 hrs in total. There was 1 Wasdale team member involved and the incident occured at NY 209077. Total rescuer hours: 5
