Whilst the first incident was ongoing we got a second call for 2 walkers reporting themselves cragfast on steep ground overlooking a water fall. The precise position was unclear but as we were in the area Piers Gill was a possibility. With the possibility of a technical rescue at the same time as a stretcher carry Duddon team were called to offer assistance. The 2 walkers were found in the ground between Piers and Straight Gill and were walked back down to the valley.
