Piers Gill, Scafell Pike – Sun 3rd Apr 2016 – Callout 12 in 2016 (limited)

We were called by Police about a group of 2 and a group of 3 who had combined after getting lost on the descent of Scafell Pike. They believed they were near Piers Gill, which was confirmed by Sarloc and a small group was sent up to help them walk off the mountain. Few of the party members had torches. We would always recommend going hill walking with a torch (with good batteries) as you never know when you might need it.
